Sherlock Star’s Purse Snatched While She Was Accepting The Emmy Award!

If only she knew someone good at solving crimes…

Sherlock: The Abominable Bride was one of the big winners at the 2016 Emmy Awards when it snatched Best TV Movie… but unfortunately, the cast wasn’t so lucky.

Not only did Benedict Cumberbatch lose Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series to American Crime Story‘s Courtney B. Vance, but his costar Amanda Abbington actually lost her purse in all the commotion of the awards show!

Apparently, Martin Freeman‘s love interest (both on- and off-camera) says her bag was “nicked” when the cast went onstage to collect their award.

Mary Watson herself addressed the robbery while thanking her fans for their support on Twitter shortly after Sunday’s ceremony, saying:

We’ll sick the Hounds of Baskerville on them!

In all seriousness, this is super unfortunate given the entire room was supposed to be filled with Hollywood elite — who you’d imagine could afford to live without stealing.

Sticky-fingered seat filler? Or klepto TV star? We may never solve this mystery…

Still, congrats on the win, Amanda!
