A British couple decided to keep their sense of humor after burglars ransacked their home in Northampton by posting an apology note to them.
Kate Barrett, 36, and Dan Owens, 34, told BBC News they believe burglars
broke into their home Sunday evening and eventually took cash, an iPod among other items. The couple found other items thrown everywhere after returning home from a weekend away.

"I'd gone to my parents for the weekend while Kate went to London to watch the Strictly Come Dancing live show," Owens said. "She called and I came straight over and the place had been ransacked."
A Northampton Police statement read that burglars broke open a back door and also took "a black Canon SX50 HS camera, Seiko gold watch, cufflinks with a pheasant motif and various jewelry and cash."
Barrett told Metro
that she was amused by some of the things the burglars did not take, like a videocassette tapes and an old VHS machine. She expressed her disappointment in an apology letter to the burglars.
The note read: "Dear Burglars. Thanks for popping by the other night and we’re sorry we didn't have more for you to take. As you now know, we don’t have particularly expensive tastes so there's no need to come in again, unless you would like to take my collection of VHS videos and cassettes – Dan is very disappointed you didn't take these first time round. If you would like them just knock on the front door and ask — no need to break another patio door as it's dreadfully hard work cleaning up all the glass. Thanks for all the finger prints – we really appreciated those. Lots of love, Kate and Dan xxx."
Barrett mused about the burglary on Twitter as well.
