Ice addicts leave bizarre letters in 'Goldilocks' robberies

CRIMINALS with a conscience left apology notes at homes they ransacked of $100,000 in jewellery, tools and a gun in a bizarre "Goldilocks" robbery that's left police baffled.

Two thieves broke into five unoccupied homes around the Eumundi region and wasted no time making themselves at home, eating food from the cupboards and sleeping in their victims' beds.

Before making their getaway, the offenders scrawled two apology notes blaming their ice addiction for the break-ins.

A resident told 9News the offenders even chopped down a tree before fleeing with stolen goods.

One note read: "I am truly sorry ... I am an addict ... if there was more done on education for younger people".

In another note, an offender wrote "I can only hope you're insured".

Noosa CIB officer-in-charge Tim Byrnes said the robberies were bizarre.

"It's very unusual that criminal suspects would leave a note behind at a crime scene claiming responsibility," Detective Senior Sergeant Tim Byrnes told 9News.
