Having something stolen from you is never an enjoyable experience. It’s even worse when the thing you lose is important or valuable, like a car!

Trying to replace something so big can be very difficult and costly, so Erin Hatzi was rightfully upset when she discovered that her car had been stolen.

Hatzi and her husband had a bunch of security cameras set-up around their home which filmed the whole thing.

The footage showed the thief approach the car, a red Subaru, unlock the doors and climb inside.

Incredibly, the story then took a bizarre turn.

Just a couple of days later, the car reappeared outside the Hatzi’s home! Stuck to the windshield was a note explaining the whole thing, along with $30 in gas money.

Here’s what the note says:

Hello, So sorry I stole your car. I sent my friend with my key to pick up my red Subaru at 7802 SE Woodstock, and she came back with your car. I did not see the car until this morning, and I said, ‘that is not my car.’ There is some cash for gas, and I more than apologize for the shock and upset this must have caused you. […] So so sorry for this mistake.

So it turned out that this robbery was actually nothing more than an innocent mistake.

It’s a bizarre story, but at least Erin got her car back and it all ended well. Please SHARE this article around and let your friends learn about this amusing theft.
