A man got a mysterious call from a stranger in Menlo Park, who said she'd found his day planner abandoned by the side of the road.
When he went to his car parked in the Menlo Park Civic Center lot early on Monday evening (Oct. 25), he found a rear window smashed on his 2008 Mercedes. Sure enough, the $15 planner that had been left on a seat was no longer there. Nothing else was missing.
He met up with the Good Samaritan, who returned the planner with all contents intact, police said.
