Bad karma prompts thief to return stolen ketchup


LACEY TOWNSHIP, NJ — A ketchup thief who said she ruined her karma in committing the crime, has seen a change in luck!

The New Jersey woman swiped a bottle of Heinz ketchup from a Perkins restaurant and bakery in Lacey Township and, after a streak of bad luck, brought two new bottles and a letter of apology back to the restaurant.

The ketchup culprit said after her condiment stunt she experienced a string of bad luck, including getting into a car crash the same day as the theft.

Heinz heard about the whole thing and is stepping up to help her out:

Looks as though Perkins and Heinz have forgiven the ketchup thief, with Heinz granting her some good Ketchup Karma!

The thief’s note and the two ketchup bottles are now on display at the restaurant.
