Burglars rarely return to the scene of the crime — much less in order to return the things they stole.
The burglars had climbed in through the walls, disabling security systems and motion detectors as they went.
As Stallings left the scene around 1:30 AM, she overheard an officer explain to some "transients" who had gathered near the building what the nonprofit did.
"We had no idea what we were takeing," the burglars wrote in a note attached to the no-longer-stolen goods. "Here your stuff back we hope that you guys can continue to make a difference in peoples live. God bless."
Though it will still cost the nonprofit some $1,000 to repair the damages caused by the break-in, Stallings is still grateful for the burglars' sudden change of heart.
