TN - Addict on the mend pays back Nashville market for 2002 robbery, and apologizes
InterAsian Market Receives Apology Note, $300 From Person Who Robbed the Store 11 Years Ago. (nashvillescene.com)
An unidentified man brought it in an envelope marked "OWNER," says Somboon Wu, son of store owner Keosavanh Xayarath. When Wu hesitated, the man grew insistent, saying he had to give the envelope directly to the owner "because there's money" in it.
Wu says he began to feel wary about accepting the envelope from the stranger, but the man was dogged. "He kept insisting I take it. He left, he came back. He was really emphatic: 'Take it.' " Eventually the man put the envelope on the counter and left.
"My dad waited to open the envelope," Wu tells the Scene, because of their discomfort about the mysterious transaction. They considered calling an attorney to inspect whatever the document might be.
Finally, Xayarath opened the envelope, discovering the letter and $300 dollars, the amount the man confessed to stealing in an armed robbery more than a decade ago, while he was under the influence of drugs.

I like how the owner responded on instaagram and twitter, letting the guy know that he is forgiven.
From your link:
"To the anonymous person, we want to tell you all is forgiven and thank for your note. We don't care about the money. We are more inspired and touched by your act. We hope you find peace in life and prosperity. Best wishes!"
I hope the guy reads it.

My opinion and nothing but my opinion.
Tor:Con Index link below. Will show you the probability of a tornado happening in your area.
FEMA's link for Emergency Supplies list below or what you need to survive for three days in case help is not immediately available to you.
You can also purchase a weather radio which will inform you of severe weather even if your electricity goes out. Runs on batteries of course.
