(UNIONVILLE, Ind.) -- A 16-foot-tall inflatable Santa Claus stolen from a Unionville, Ind., man’s yard has been returned with $100 and a note of apology, writes The Herald-Times.
Jason McClaren says an anonymous, typed note read: "Returning your property is the right thing to do, and apologies for the thief who took it in the first place."
The note makes it clear that the person who returned the Santa wasn't the thief who took it and two six-foot-tall penguins this past week. The penguin decorations are still missing, McClaren told The Herald-Times, adding that he now plans to use the $100 to buy new decorations.
