'Porch Pirate' Returns Package He Allegedly Stole With Note of Apology
The man said he was dared to swipe the package.
The homeowners, who live in Kissimmee outside Orlando, say they found the package with a handwritten note last week.
“I know no apologies could make up for what I did,” the letter said. “I did not go to your house with the intentions to steal. I have never done anything like this in my life, I come from a good family and good morals and it’s eating me inside knowing what I did."
The young man wrote that he had a couple of beers with a friend, who then dared him to swipe the packages.
"I really hope and pray to God that you can find it in your heart to forgive me,” the letter continued.
However, the alleged thief, who didn't sign the letter, didn't return all of the items taken, according to the police.
Police said they have never seen anything like this before.
"I am sure it is a huge embarrassment and he is probably trying to save face,” Maj. Jacob Ruiz with the Osceola County Sheriff's Office told Inside Edition.
Police are telling the suspect to turn himself in.
"I understand people make mistakes," Ruiz added.
Anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspect is asked to contact the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office at 407-348-2222 or the Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS.
