It seemed miraculous enough to Paul Gilmour that police recovered his bike, but even more surprising was the thief's handwritten apology note that came along with it. "A police officer brought me my bike, undamaged. But there was also this handwritten letter from this guy," Gilmour, 41, of Portland, Ore., told ABCNews.com. "Apparently, when he was picked up by police, he had asked for a piece of paper and a pen and wrote out this apology letter for me. And he included $10 out of his pocket to help pay for a replacement lock."

The letter, handwritten by the thief, apologized for stealing the bike and explained why he had committed the crime

That's certainly a rare turn of events. A person acknowledging their faults when they don't have to is representative of good character, even for a thief.
