After breaking into the San Bernadino County Sexual Assault Services office the night of July 31, burglars made off with several computer towers, monitors, and a laptop. The next morning, the nonprofit's executive director Candy Stallings received a call from the police, reporting suspicious activity around the office. When she arrived, Stallings was stunned to see the stolen goods waiting in front of the building in a shopping cart — along with an apology note tucked inside the laptop. "We had no idea what we were taking," the thieves wrote. "We hope that you guys can continue to make a difference in people's lives."
