The case of a stolen tortoise has been solved.

Sandra Bommert says her 25-pound pet was swiped from its backyard cage Sunday night.

Apparently after seeing the story on the Channel 13 News at Five the thief had second thoughts.

Bommert tells us she found the tortoise in a cardboard box on her doorstep Tuesday evening.

Attached to the box was a note that said, “Sorry, I thought the turtle was unloved.”

The police report says Lucky is worth up to $1,000.
