In Of Plymouth Plantation, William Bradford mentions one instance of Native Americans stealing Pilgrims' tools while they were eating dinner. The tools were later returned after negotiating with Samoset, a member of an Abenaki tribe, who could speak broken English.

Does anyone know any other instances of Native Americans stealing from the Pilgrims around 1620-1630?

I can find plenty of cases of the Pilgrims stealing from the Native Americans, but no more of the contrary.
