Deputies: Man returned iPad stolen from boy at McDonald's

A thief had a change of heart and returned a little boy's iPad that deputies say he stole from a table at a South Florida McDonald's restaurant.

In a news release, the Broward Sheriff's Office said the iPad was taken on Nov. 6 while the little boy was distracted. The thief snatched the tablet and walked out of the restaurant.

The iPad was returned to the Tamarac McDonalds on Tuesday, a day after the sheriff's office released surveillance footage of the man taking the tablet.

Investigators are seeking the public's help in finding the thief and Broward Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $3,000 for information that leads to his arrest.
