LETTERS: Victim of a random act of (un)kindness

To the criminals who stole from me, I feel nothing but sympathy for you.

On Friday, Nov. 6, I went on a short hike with my friend at our local bluffs.

Before we returned, someone had smashed open my car window — stealing my purse, wallet and crocheting bag. This bag contained mittens and a crochet hook that my deceased mother and aunt had gifted to me.

While I can replace my purse and wallet, the contents of my crochet bag are invaluable.

After the group had broken my window and stole my possessions, this group went on a spending spree at several local grocery stores, gas stations and liquor stores.

I will replace my window, my license and my purse. What I cannot replace is the contents of my crocheting bag. This bag is covered in red checkers and it is insulated.

If anyone discovers this bag, please contact me at 250-809-4545.

To the criminals who stole from me, I feel nothing but sympathy for you.
