A man shared that his car was broken into recently. However, in a strange turn of events, the thief made sure to leave the man's important identification documents safely next to the car. It seems thieves have hearts too - or maybe they just understand the struggle of queuing at Home Affairs.

Twitter user Jessieahir shared his bizarre but oddly amusing post online. He shared a picture of his smashed car window and another shot of his documents arranged neatly on the ground. His post was captioned:

"So a guy broke into my car last night and this morning I see this. Did he really bring back the documents he stole? Thank you?"

The post went viral on social media as many were left confused by the thief's motives. Twitter user sniggllzz said:

"My feelings don’t know how to feel like, I’m sorry he broke into your car but wow how thoughtful to bring the documents back like"

SculptSocial said:

"Like "I'm a destructive bugger but I appreciate the importance of well-organized documents....."

"Can the thief respond to this tweet so that we honor him?"

"They robbed my friend at gun point, took his school bag(had his laptop) and phone. They called his mother from his cell phone to come and collect his books and notes at a neutral place"

"Unemployment, he's possibly not a career thief but someone who's trying by all means to make ends meet. He risked being caught to bring those back, I doubt he even enjoys breaking into people's cars. If there was no food at all in the country, most people would be cannibals"
