Athens, GA (AP) - A thief apparently smashed into an Athens
home and left notes wishing the owner a Merry Christmas.

A police report said an officer noticed the broken window while
patrolling Sunday.

Inside the ransacked home, police officers found notes left on
two beds reading, "thank you merry christmas." The Athens
Banner-Herald reports that the notes were scrawled on white cards
with a yellow marker.

Police were not immediately sure what was missing since the
residents were traveling.

    So, to celebrate a season of love and brotherhood he stole from a family? Bet he needed money for drugs, but even if he was stealing for his own family, look what he did to the ones he stole from. They've lost not only property, but peace of mind, all for his material gain. After being robbed, you no longer feel safe in your home. Whether his notes were sarcastic or honest thanks, he should go to jail, and I hope they catch him.

    I would be mad if it were my home he ransacked but obviously he needed gifts to make his family happy during the holiday season. God bless him and at least he was nice enough to say thank you (even though it doesn't make it right)! :)
