Jeremy Clarkson has released a video of a 'brazen thief shoplifting £80 worth of food and alcohol' Diddly Squat farm shop.
It shows a bearded man dressed in a dark top, body-warmer, and hat, taking several items off the shelves and putting them into his pocket.
"This man came “shopping” at the farm shop. I would like to meet the cu," Clarkson wrote.
Cops say two men arrived at the Diddly Squat farm shop in the same car.
One man bought nearly £70 worth of items, while the other man stole alcohol and food items totalling £80.
The theft happened at around 4.15pm on Tuesday afternoon in Oxfordshire.
A spokesperson for Thames Valley police said: "We received a report of shoplifting at Diddly Squat Farm Shop in Chipping Norton Road, Chadlington, at around 4.15pm yesterday (8/8).
"Two men entered the shop after arriving in the same vehicle. One went to the till and bought £69-worth of goods while the other stole two bottles of alcohol and another unknown item, worth around £80.
"Both men then left the shop, got back in the vehicle and drove off in the direction of Burford."
The TV star warned of a massive "c*** up" as health experts said it should be disposed of "immediately underwater wearing thick gloves and protective eyewear".
The batch is being recalled urgently and customers have been told to arrange a refund and replacement from Hawkstone, which was launched by Clarkson in 2021.
The Food Standards Agency said: "Please check any Hawkstone Cider you've bought recently. There's a small batch (L3160 on the bottlecap) that's over-fermenting, which means it might – in very extreme instances – explode.
"Please dispose of it immediately underwater wearing thick gloves and protective eye wear. Please bring bottlecap in along with your receipt for a refund or email email@example.com with any queries you may have."
