SAN BERNADINO, Calif. — Burglars who stole computers from an office building returned the items — along with a letter of apology — after apparently realizing they had ransacked a nonprofit that helps victims of sexual violence.

"We had no idea what we were takeing. Here your stuff back we hope that you guys can continue to make a difference in peoples live. God bless," said the note with misspellings.

"This is the first time in my career I have seen the return of stolen items," said San Bernardino Police Lt. Paul Williams. "It appears the guilt of taking the property caused the return of the items."
