WALSRODE, Germany, Nov. 14 (UPI) -- Peter Jurgensen, 73, said his wallet was stolen at a supermarket in Walsrode in March 2007 and it contained his credit card, ID, photos of his grandchildren and $471 cash, The Local.de reported Thursday.

Jurgensen said he did not realize his wallet was gone until a few hours later and he forgot about the incident after replacing it and its contents.

The pensioner told the Bild newspaper he was surprised to be reminded of the stolen wallet recently when it was mailed to his home along with all of its contents and an apology letter.

"Greed drove me to taking the wallet," the thief wrote. "I have become a confessed Christian. The holy spirit has called upon me to repair the damage."

The thief included an extra $67 with the wallet as a means of apology.

"Everything was in the wallet as I left it. I thank the man for his belated honesty," Jurgensen said.
