Authorities are looking for a one-armed man who stole a pickup at a car wash July 30.

The man, who appeared to be missing his left arm, had been seated on a bench at Top Notch Car Wash, 3425 Wrightsboro Road, for some time before jumping into the driver's seat of a black 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche and driving off, according to Richmond County sheriff's Investigator Billy Dixon.

A car wash employee was vacuuming the rear passenger side at the time of the theft. The vehicle had Georgia tag 999 XBK.

 Dixon said the bandit hit the curb and blew out a rear tire during his escape.
