CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - A church burglar in South Texas who stole about $20 has left a note saying: "Forgive me. I need the money."

No arrests have been made in the break-in discovered Thursday at South Shore Christian Church in Corpus Christi.

Church secretary Iris Cantu said Friday that cleanup of a broken door has been completed and weekend services will go on as scheduled. She had no damage estimate.

Cantu also says whoever stole the cash and left the apology note on a desk "had very good manners, I'll give him that."

Corpus Christi police spokesman Kirk Stowers said the investigation is in its early stages.
