Two female thieves who were caught in front of the camera while stealing a package from a portico in Washington state returned the package after discovering it contained a special gift for a sick child.
The box, which was omitted earlier this month for the Edgewood home, contained an imitation WWE Pro Wrestling Beltong that was modified for five-year-old Timmy Vick Jr, an autistic boy who fights a brain tumor.
In addition to the returned package, the women left a note in which they apologized for the theft and said they never intended to steal from a sick child.

The drama began when Vick's parents, who live in Delaware, decided to buy the imitation champion belt for their son, a fanatic WWE wrestler fan.
The couple told WBOC that they have purchased the belt from an online manufacturer before sending it to Sergio Moreira in Washington State for modification.
The Vicks – who have three other children in addition to their sick son – spent around $ 2,000 on the gift to cheer their son up while undergoing brain tumor treatment.
& # 39; I just wanted to give him something to remember and something that would last forever, & # 39; Vick's father, Timmy Vick Sr., told the news network.
Their joy, however, turned to despair when the gift from Moreira & # 39; s porch was stolen before he could begin the adjustment process.
Vick is an autistic child who was diagnosed with a brain tumor in November last year. He is depicted with his father, Timmy Vick Sr.
A doorbell camera captured two women squeezing the package from outside the building last weekend.
However, after the police had shared the images online, the belt was returned within a few days, in addition to an apology of four pages.
The note was written by one of the female thieves and can be read in part: & We are sorry I brought your things. Never in a million years had I expected that I would have stolen a sick five-year-old. I have a six-year-old myself … you can see that life has had its ups and downs because we were homeless and tried to earn a few dollars quickly.
& # 39; I am ashamed & # 39 ;, the note continued.
Moreira met the two women – a mother and a daughter – and believes their note was real.

& # 39; They said they were homeless drug addicts and thought they could earn a few extra dollars from what was in the boxes, & # 39; he said. CNN.
& # 39; I could see the look on their faces, that they were very sad and that they had been crying. & # 39;
No charges have been filed against the women, and Moreira says they are reluctant to prosecute them for the crime as long as they seek help.
The Washington statesman says that he is now working on Vick's belt and that it will be ready to be sent to him in about three weeks.
The Vicks say that this time they need a signature if the package is dropped at the door.
& # 39; We can't wait to get it and show it to him and give it to him. We know he will be so excited, & they said to WBOC.
