(Scroll down for video) A man was disappointed when he found that his car has been stolen, and reported the theft to police in Indiana.

The car owner, Kyle Moeller, was surprised when a few days later, he found the keys to his stolen car inside his mailbox.

The car was not returned, but a note was left at his home. The note had an apology along with the location of the stolen vehicle, police said.

“Cars at GECOM. Very sorry for the damage, Anonymous,” the note read.

Moeller admitted that he left his Dodge Stratus unlocked and the keys were inside the vehicle when it went missing from his driveway.

The Dodge had scratches on the hood of the car after the thieves allegedly hit a street sign. Moeller found the car parked about a mile from his house.

Police later arrested two suspects of Greensburg, after an informant tipped them off.

Police believe that the 16-year-old thief returned the keys and wrote the note after regretting his actions.

He and 19-year-old Tyler Chaney, were arrested on charges of auto theft and burglary.
