Restitution

        New York-A 31-year-old accountant repaid the $40 he stole 15 years ago from an amusement park-and added $286 interest to atone for his previous theft. Jeff Street was a 16-year-old parking lot attendant at the amusement park in 1969. Recently, he said, “I was praying at my desk and reading the Word, and it just came to me: It wasn’t the Lord’s voice, but it came from within me-I had to pay back the money.” Street said.—Cited in Dallas Morning News, November 11, 1984
