shopkeeper-paid-by-robber.jpgA would-be robber in Long Island has paid a store owner back.

In June, a robber tried to steal money from a deli, but the shopkeeper provided the man with forty dollars and a loaf of bread, and made him promise never to steal again after saying a prayer.

The robber has now paid that money back, sending a letter that  read in part, “I know it was wrong, but I had to feed my family.” He said he had turned to religion instead.
