ROESELARE, Belgium, Jan. 8 (UPI) -- A Belgian woman said the contents of her stolen purse were mailed to her home by the apparently remorseful thief.

Sabine Gesquiere of Roeselare said she was vacationing in Nieuwpoort for Christmas and her purse was stolen from a pub in the seaside town the day after the holiday, flandersnews.be reported Wednesday.

"My handbag was under the table, but suddenly it was gone. I had lost my camera, my mobile [phone], my wallet and much more," she said.

Gesquiere said she was shocked Tuesday when she received a mysterious package apparently sent by the thief.

"It didn't have a stamp, only a sticker from the health insurance and nearly everything that was missing had been returned: the content of my wallet, my ID, debit cards, photos and newspaper clippings; I had them all back," she said. "I don't think I will ever see the rest again, but I hope the thief reads this and returns the camera memory card. It contains photos of my last trip and snaps of the kids at Christmas."
