Kid who stole from church repays money on Christmas Eve - more than 40 years later

From Alabama-

A man who said he stole money from Siluria Baptist Church in Alabaster as a youth decades ago repaid it back with interest on Christmas.

"On Christmas Eve, we had a check in the mail for $1,000," said Pastor Michael Brooks.

The man who sent the check called Brooks last month and told him that when he was a child in the church's Royal Ambassadors youth program, he and some other boys stole money out of a drink machine.

"His conscience kicked in," Brooks said. "He said he'd always felt badly about it."

The theft took place when the man was about 10 years old, more than 40 years ago, Brooks said.
