Hello, my name's Vinny...
Vinny Hawkins. I'm an old man now, in my seventies and live in sheltered housing, but when I was twenty-one in 1962, I was out and about, dressed up to the nines, doing the rounds, ducking and diving.
At twenty-one, I was in my pomp. Up west most of the time, keeping my ear to the ground for any opportunity that might come my way. And then one day it did. I was dodging about in Soho and bumped into an Italian hotel porter mate of mine who told me about the world famous actress who was well known for being, shall we say, casual with her jewellery. Always leaving it all over the place.
See, that was my game back then, thieving and nicking. Anyway, up a drainpipe I go and as lady luck would have it, I managed to get my hands on some of those gems. This was the best result I'd ever had. These beauties were worth a fortune and would be my pension. My way out. Out of the council flat me, the wife and our baby was in and off into the good life, big house, flash motor and even flashier clobber.
Only things then went all wobbly on me, didn't they? All going well and then bosh! My 'fence' had a death in the family with his old mum passing over and my gems seemingly going with her! I ended up getting my collar felt for a previous job the earned me a ten year stretch and me and that jewellery parted company, for was seemed for good. By the time I'd got out, I'd lost my wife and contact with my boy. I went straight and finally I retired and moved in here.
But, fifty years later, those gems suddenly become important to me and I need to get my hands on them again. To do it, to get them back will involve grave robbing and cracking a safe, but you know what? I think I can do it...
