Elderly man returns money he says he stole from Sears department store in the 40s

An elderly man has returned – with interest – some money he says he stole from a Sears cash register in the 40s. The man reportedly took $20 70 years ago, and has now handed back $100.

The man has not been identified and Sears say they will not be seeking to track him down. He apparently handed over an envelope containing the money and a note. The store says it is going to helping local families.

Apparently the man had been bothered for more than half a century by the money he took, and finally decided to quietly pay it back. It’s not clear whether the money was ever missed back when it was first taken.
