“Thou shalt not steal.”

A penitent thief who nicked albums and singles from longstanding Camden Town emporium Out On The Floor Records has returned the stolen items – after finding religion, a decade later.

Returned to the record shop by post, the anonymous shoplifter left the following handwritten note of explanation and apology:

“We looked at the letter and looked through the tunes and they didn’t nick any old rubbish. It was a nice surprise to see some good vinyl returned,” shop manager Jake Travis told Camden New Journal.

Among the stolen items were sought-after singles by The Stone Roses, The Smiths and The Cure. A couple of the records showed an “interesting – well, not great” taste in music, according to Travis.

“It was a nice gesture,” he added. “Now I’d like some of the reggae I’ve had stolen down the years to come back.”
