SEATTLE (AP) - The manager of the Sears store in downtown Seattle says an elderly man has repaid - with interest - cash the man says he stole in the late 1940s.
KING-TV reports that the man hand-delivered an envelope Monday addressed to "Sears manager." Inside were a note and a $100 bill.
The note said the man stole $20 to $30 from a cash register decades ago and wanted to pay back $100.
Manager Gary Lorentson says he thinks the man's conscience "has been bothering him for the past 60 years."
Store security cameras recorded the man, but Sears officials said they don't know who he is and they won't release the video.
The store plans to put the money toward helping needy families in the holiday season.
