A group of burglars who unknowingly robbed the office of a nonprofit organization that counsels victims of sexual assault returned the stolen items and wrote the charity a letter of apology once they realized who they had stolen from.

The San Bernardino County counseling organization was hit by burglars on July 31, Daily Mail reports. The robbers entered the building from the roof and made off with several laptops, along with other computer equipment.

Candy Stallings, director of San Bernardino County Sexual Assault Services, was called to the scene of the crime at 4 a.m. to speak to the police and the inquiring local community.

The publicity of the robbery may have been what influenced the burglars’ miraculous crisis of conscience.

Stallings told Daily Mail that the following night, she was called by the police again because all of the organization’s stolen equipment had been returned.

One of the items reportedly had a note attached to it that read: “We had no idea what we were takeing [sic]. Here your stuff back we hope that you guys can continue to make a difference in peoples live. God bless.”

Stallings told NBC: “We were all pretty shocked. You’ve got to be kidding me. I was in disbelief, I got chills, I got very emotional.”

She said that she plans to have a copy of the note framed.
