Thieves return statue, leave flowers and a card

April 08, 2019 - 3:55 AM

WEST CHESTER, Pa. - Two thieves who snatched a statue of a lion from outside a home in a Philadelphia suburb had a change of heart after police posted surveillance video of the heist.

The statute was taken from the West Chester residence on Wednesday. But by Friday, police posted a video of the thieves returning it. They also left behind a bouquet of flowers and a card.

Police say it was a "smart move to return the property" and the owner is grateful.
