A Stockton man had his prosthetic leg stolen Wednesday after he told two alleged thieves that he didn’t have any money.

“It’s like a brag piece, a trophy,” Jackie Copland, 49, told FOX40.

He was on his way to Walgreens on Wednesday when he had to call a friend to come pick him up. Police say two men had attacked him and ran off, laughing, with his leg because he didn’t have any money.

“I couldn’t walk home,” he said.

Worth about $1,500, Copland says his prosthetic leg is only valuable to him since it’s customized to his leg.

“I’ve needed it ever since I was shot in the leg nine years ago,” Copland told FOX40. “I don’t have the money [to replace it], I have a grand daughter to take care of, that’s what’s on my mind right now.”

Police have not made any arrests. If you have any information, contact the Stockton Police Department.
