This story is proof that everything happens for a reason, even if the reason is quite silly sometimes.

Man whose truck was stolen finds it days later in the exact same spot with a wholesome note and a gift

A mysteriously stolen truck showed up at the same spot days later, with no difference other than the fact that the tank was not as full as before, and the truck had an apology note along with some small gifts


Varun Chada, the owner of a cafe called Kati Street in Auckland, New Zealand, was walking towards his truck one day after completing the work, only to find that it had been stolen from right outside his cafe…and then, somehow, reappeared exactly where he left it. Chada posted about the bizarre incident on Kati Street's Facebook page. In conversation with the New Zealand Herald, he said, "The first time I thought I was losing my mind because I'd just walked inside and the second time I rocked up and it was parked there." 


The neighbor's security camera revealed that in the five minutes Chada was inside his cafe, someone came and stole his truck. So, Chada did the logical thing. Along with filing a complaint with the police, he posted about the stolen truck on the cafe's social media with extensive detail. He wrote a caption stating that his truck was stolen from right outside the shop and that the attached picture was of the man who stole it. He urged people to let him know if they had any leads. Luckily, a decent number of people shared the post to increase its reach. However, four days later, the unexpected happened.


His truck showed up on a random morning in the same condition, in the same spot! Chada was as stunned and informed the cops immediately. He saw that the truck was in the same condition, more or less, and had only lost about a quarter of a tank of gasoline, and the license plates had been taken out. However, whoever took the truck apparently left some new toys for Chada's son, with an apology note. The note explained that the man who stole the truck needed a ride home since he was drunk. They also added that they had left the keys and toys inside the car for Chada to find. 


Chada said, "I couldn't believe it. It was exactly where I'd parked it and I walked up to the window and there was a note inside it." Chada also added that while he isn't condoning what the thief did, he is stoked to have had the truck returned safely to him. After he informed the police about the same, a police spokesperson said, "Despite the return of this stolen vehicle to its owner, police are continuing to investigate the theft and are following positive lines of inquiry." However, it's safe to say that all's well that ends well.
