CLINTON, Ark. (KARK) – A thief in Clinton, Arkansas returned $160 cash to the owner of a lost wallet.
Susan McNabb reported the stolen wallet to police Monday after she left it behind at a Walmart in Clinton.
On Wednesday, police called to say an unidentified woman dropped off an envelope with the missing cash and a handwritten note asking for forgiveness.
McNabb read part of the note out loud:
“To the lady that left her wallet at Walmart, please forgive me as I always strive to have integrity, and that day I failed miserably.”
Words on paper that appeared to be more valuable than the bills that came along with it.
“There’s good in everybody,” McNabb says.
She plans to spend the returned $160 in a way that can help someone else.
