SOUTH ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — An anonymous hit-and-run driver has sent $1,000 to police in eastern Minnesota asking for forgiveness 30 years later and requesting officers give the money to the victim.
The Pioneer Press reports the South St. Paul Police Department received the money and an anonymous note this month.
The note says the anonymous driver hit a parked car one evening in 1985 or 1986. The sender expressed remorse and requested police try to track down the owner of the vehicle. The note says the money could be donated to a police charity if the victim isn't located.
South St. Paul Police Chief Bill Messerich says police records don't go that far back, so the money was put into the department's general account. It will be used to buy new equipment or technology.
