NACOGDOCHES, Texas – A thief with a generous spirit dropped a dollar into a Salvation Army kettle as he fled from the scene of the crime, police say.

Byron Garrett, 21, was arrested Tuesday morning after the Commercial Bank in the Nacogdoches Wal-Mart was robbed, according to KTRE-TV.

A witness allegedly saw Garrett make the donation outside the store as he ran off the property.

Bank manager Tommy Ellison confirmed his branch got its stolen money back — all except $1.

The bank has decided to leave the dollar in the kettle, Ellison said.

Nacogdoches is 170 miles southeast of Dallas.
