Thieves mysteriously return stolen goods

The Associated Press

WOOLWICH — Authorities say two all-terrain vehicles and a chainsaw reported stolen from the garage at a Woolwich home last month have mysteriously shown up.

The Sagadahoc County Sheriff 's Department says the items were reported stolen on March 29.

Investigators think the vehicles were taken between 9:45 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. the previous day, while the residents were away from the home.

Then one day last week a deputy on patrol drove by and noticed that the two four-wheelers had been left in a driveway near the house.

The chainsaw was sitting atop one of the ATVs.

Police tell the Times Record they were a little dirty but otherwise fine.

No word on who the remorseful thief is.
