Thief Has Change-Of-Heart, Returns Hingham Woman's Credit Card

The man had stolen the credit card and used it to buy a $200 gift card. He said he was planning on using the gift card to buy Christmas presents.

Along with her credit card, the man gave the woman the gift card he had purchased and apologized. He told the woman he had a change-of-heart.

“Sometimes if a criminal has a change of heart, it’s one thing to throw it away or not use it or even in rare cases, to just mail it back, but to drive it back to their house is very rare,” Sgt. Steven Dearth told WBZ NewsRadio 1030.

The woman told police she does not want to pursue charges.
