A ONE-ARMED thief is being hunted after he stole a SINGLE cuff-link from a jewellers shop in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex.
The thief pretended to be looking for a present for his mother when he knocked boxes of cuff-links on the floor and made off with one. The cuff-link is worth £120. Sally Ann Manthorp, who works at the shop, said: "It wasn't until we watched the CCTV we saw he had an empty sleeve tucked in his pocket."
The thief is described as white, bald, wearing a dirty navy blue bomber jacket and blue jeans, SCOTCH IN APPEARANCE and drinking a bottle of BUCKFAST.
He obviously had a BLACK TIE SOIREE to attend that very EVENING.
