A man who had regularly stolen beer from a Kentucky couple's backyard refrigerator has finally come clean.

The elderly Villa Hills residents recently received a confession from the beer thief, along with $140 in cash on their back patio, according to Cinncinati.com. The letter was addressed "Dear Homeowner" and read, "Enclosed is a sum of cash that my friends and I owe you and your family to repay you for all of the times we have stolen from your poolside fridge/bar over the past few years."

The thief went on to state that he wasn't "honest enough" to apologize to the couple face-to-face, but that he had decided to come clean about the stolen alcohol after recently finding the "Gospel of Jesus Christ."

The couple was shocked by the letter, but appreciative and stated that they would welcome the man into their home anytime.
