PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Scores of ones and zeroes stolen from addresses mounted on the homes of Philadelphia residents have been returned.

The news website Billy Penn reports that a white trash bag containing 83 metal address markers was left Monday night at the east Kensington home of Meghan Haley.

Haley earlier released surveillance footage of a man and woman going around the neighborhood in September ripping zeroes and ones off the front of homes.

She says she doesn’t know whether the bag containing 56 ones and 27 zeroes was returned by the thieves or by a good Samaritan who found the numbers.

But then, she and other neighbors don’t know why the numbers were taken - though they suspected that it may have been for some kind of art installation.
