His hearts in the right place!

Church thief leaves apology: 'Sorry, I'm poor'

A thief who stole from a church in the US state of Georgia left behind a note saying he was sorry.

A note scrawled on the wall said: 'Sorry but I'm poor. Forgive me Lord.'

The Rev. Roger Davis told local TV station WSB-TV that expensive equipment including microphones and a laptop containing important records were stolen over the weekend from Berean Baptist Church. The robber broke locks and the church's safe, but it was empty.

It was the fourth time the church in Ellenwood, southeast of Atlanta, has been robbed in two years.

Davis joked that he's considering putting up a note of his own telling potential robbers to call him instead and the church will take up a collection for them.
