Expensive work site theft has a happy ending

Thursday, June 10, 2021

Call it the Case of the Thief with a Conscience.

On Monday, a surveyor reported to police that a global-positioning satellite head unit valued at more than $40,000 had been stolen from a work site just south of Warrenton High School between 4 and 4:50 p.m.

Police issued bulletins about the stolen equipment, including a post on Facebook.

By Wednesday morning, the unit and its case had been returned to the location from where it had been stolen.

A note was attached: “Sorry, I thought this was out for grabs. I’m sorry.”
