MOSCOW (AP) — A burglar in a small town in Siberia has broken into a house and left his photograph with a note of apology.

The burglar in Prokopyevsk, about 3,100 kilometers east of Moscow, picked the lock on the front door and stole a chain saw as well as several blocks of cigarette packs, the Interior Ministry's department in the Kemerovo region said on Friday.

The owner of the house found a photo of the burglar lying on the desk with a handwritten note on the back which said: "I'm going to give myself up today. Please forgive me. I hate myself for this."

Police eventually found the man who turned out to be a 26-year-old local resident with multiple convictions for burglaries.

The police did not say when the burglary happened.
