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."
