A one-armed thief is being hunted by police following a robbery at a jewellery store in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. The robber pretended to be looking for a gift for his mother but proceeded to knock over some boxes before making off with a single gold cufflink in the shape of a boxing glove.
The cufflink was valued at £120 and so the police were called in to investigate. When viewing the CCTV images, the shop staff noticed that the thief only had one arm. A man fitting the same description was acting suspiciously in other shops so jewellers in the area had been alerted.
The thief is described as white, bald, wearing a dirty navy blue bomber jacket and blue jeans. Personally, I think he must have been working with an accomplice… After all, how on earth is he going to put the cufflink on by himself?
