On this date in 2006, Romanian police said they were looking for two burglars who broke into a woman's apartment and left her some money. The 86-year-old told police two young men, wearing masks, trashed her apartment. She said they rummaged for money or valuables but found only her wallet with the equivalent of a few bucks inside. The burglars then gave the woman all of their loose change -- and left without taking anything.
