It’s never too late to say you’re sorry. A thief who robbed a convenience store in Nashville, Tennessee, more than a decade ago has returned the money with interest and asked for forgiveness, News Channel 5 reports.

On Friday, a man walked into InterAsian Market, handed an envelope to the owner, Keosavanh Xayarath, and then bolted. Inside, there were four $100 bills and a note on yellow legal paper signed by “Anonymous,” who confessed to holding up the store one night in either 2002 or 2003 and driving off with $300, plus beer and cigarettes. A former drug addict, he wanted to “make amends to people I have hurt in the past.”

“All is forgiven,” the owners posted on Instagram. “We don’t care about the money. We are more inspired and touched by your act. We hope you find peace in life and prosperity.”
