The British actress, who plays Mary Watson on the popular BBC drama, went up with the rest of the cast to accept the Emmy for Outstanding Television Movie for the show’s special, Sherlock: The Abominable Bride.
But while she was out of her seat, Abbington, 42, claims that her purse was taken from under her chair. She took to Twitter late Sunday night to relay the information.
“Thanks for the lovely tweets re; the Emmy’s. So pleased we won! Cool, right?” she began. “However, we went to up to collect the Emmy, did some press, came back to my seat and some Ba5tard had nicked my purse from under my seat. Nice. Had my phone and driver’s licence in it. So whoever took my purse, I hope some terrible Karmic s**t happens to you. How crappy is that.”
