Rejoice! The Great Pumpkin Has Returned!

Stolen 255-pounder returned to its rightful owners.

The good news? Nine-year-old Jaiden Newcomer recently won a 255-pound pumpkin for correctly guessing its weight. The bad news? It was stolen from him. The good news? It has now been returned.

But the York Dispatch reports the pumpkin was back on the family’s porch Sunday evening after they returned from a weekend trip.

The thief also left a note that says, “I’m really sorry about taking your pumpkin, it was wrong of me, you earned the pumpkin, I didn’t think my actions through nor realize who they were affecting. Sincerest apologies.”

Kind of restores your faith in humanity, no?
