Burglar attacks victim’s home twice and leaves an apology note after £1,000 robbery

In a stunning display of remorse, a burglar broke into the victim’s home not once but twice, stealing £1,000 worth of items. However, what sets this criminal apart is the act of compassion that followed the robberies.

Before making a hasty escape, the thief took a moment to write a heartfelt apology note to the victim.

Simon Tolley, a 39-year-old burglar, broke into the victim’s home a second time and stole £1,000 worth of items. Among the stolen items were a television, a pit bike, a wallet and a bank card.


Before escaping, Tolley quickly wrote an apology note to the victim.

The victim, who resided at an address in Ryder Road, Meir, was moving when Tolley attacked her home on two separate occasions in December, according to StokeonTrentLive.

According to prosecutor Giles Pengelly, the victim had locked up her address on December 11, with some of her belongings still inside.

However, on her return the next day, she discovered her home had been burglarized and her bag, containing £200 in cash and a bank card, was missing.

On December 14, the victim’s cousin noticed more items missing from the house, including a television, drill, pit bike, and makeup. This time, there was a note.

According to Mr Pengelly, who spoke at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court, the letter stated: “I’m sorry.”

The victim received notifications on his phone that his bank card had been used for a £11.25 transaction and a £125 transaction, which was still pending.


Tolley then attempted to sell the pit bike to the victim’s neighbors, who informed him of the theft. After making some inquiries on Facebook, the victim contacted Tolley directly. He admitted to using the stolen card and offered to refund the amount he had spent.

Tolley, who did not have a fixed address, pleaded guilty to two counts of theft and fraud.

Simon Tolley has received a 15-month prison sentence, suspended for two years. In his defense, Steve Hennessy argued that Tolley had established and successfully operated his own business for a decade.

However, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, he lost his business.

Consequently, Tolley experienced a decline in his home and family life, leading him to become homeless and resort to drug use.

Mr. Hennessy stated that Tolley has since overcome his drug addiction and strongly wishes to rebuild his family relationship and revive his business.

Registrar Julian Taylor said: Things have gone from bad to worse for you. You did pretty well for a long period of time. Things collapsed around you and you became addicted to monkey powder.

How would you feel if your house was robbed? You would be upset, as would this whistleblower. Not just once, but twice. You stole the garden shed just in case.

I’m going to give you a chance. She acts calm.

The presiding judge recognized the impact of Tolley’s actions on the victim and urged him to seize the opportunity for change and self-improvement.
