Two thieves gave themselves up to police last Wednesday out of fear they had stolen more than they could handle.

Police in Xianju, Zhejiang Province said the men, identified as Yang and Lin, had pulled a smash-and-grab on a Land Rover early on September 5.

From the car they took a plastic bag that, unknown to them at the time, contained 40,000 yuan ($5,800) in cash.

It was only afterward Yang and Lin discovered the windfall.

The duo, who usually would only make off with a few hundred yuan a job, claimed they were a bit unnerved by the large sum. "The more I thought about it the more I got scared. I couldn't bear it anymore," one of the suspects said.

The two turned themselves in to police along with the remaining 36,600 yuan.
