Thief returns cash from Ohio kettle

Police near Youngstown say that two days after the kettle was emptied out, someone left $130 and an apology at the Salvation Army.

A note found at the Salvation Army on Wednesday morning read: “Here is the money I took plus money for a new kettle and bell.”

The Vindicator newspaper in Youngstown (http://bit.ly/SzAE8b ) reports that the note also said “please forgive me.”

Police in Boardman say a witness saw someone wearing a Salvation Army jacket take the kettle Monday night while a bell-ringer was on a break.

A Salvation Army official says it’s unclear how much money had been in the kettle.
