FORKED RIVER, New Jersey (KETK) – A ketchup thief’s apology note is going viral.
And you can call it ketchup karma.
The thief left a note at a Perkins Diner in New Jersey, saying karma and guilt caught up with them after they stole a bottle of ketchup a few weeks back.
The thief said just hours after the theft, they got into a car accident.
The regretful thief left a bag with the note and two replacement bottles of ketchup outside the restaurant.
The owner posted a photo of the note and bottles on Facebook and said she forgives the thief.
She says she never would have noticed the missing bottle.
And she has a hunch the thief is a teenage girl.
Heinz got wind of the story and offered to help pay for the person’s car repairs.
Heinz says the person has gotten in touch with them privately.
