A car thief with just one arm has been jailed for the seventeenth time in Bulgaria after he was spotted trying to force open a car door. Police in the Bulgarian capital Sofia say one-armed bandit Rumen Dimitrov, 50, is just not suited for crime, but can't seem to give it up. The court heard Dimitrov has 16 previous convictions for theft dating back to 1973 and after his latest attempt to steal a Mercedes was jailed yet again. A police spokesman said: "We knew it was him the moment we got descriptions from people who said they had seen a one-armed man trying to get into the car. He's probably Bulgaria's worst criminal."
