Playing Anonymous Man Finally Pays Parking Ticket He Received in 1974 in Pennsylvania

Someone was "feeling guilty" when they paid a decades-old parking ticket.

Police in Minersville, Penn., said the received a letter last week from an anonymous man named "Dave." Inside the envelope was a parking ticket from 1974 and the cash to pay for it, along with a note.

"Dear PD. I've been carrying this ticket around for 40 plus years, always intending to pay. Forgive me if I don't give you my info. With respect, Dave," the letter read.

Since the ticket was written in the 70s, it was only two dollars but the person included $3 interest.

"He paid us five. So, that's 44 years later, so that only means I made three dollars. I can't retire on that,” Chief Michael Combs told WNEP-TV.

The return address for the letter read: "feeling guilty, Wayward Road, Anytown, Ca."

"We do appreciate that this individual paid their ticket, and again, we encourage other individuals, if you have an outstanding ticket, please pay them," Combs said. 

Combs said he’d love to track down Dave, just to say thanks.
