Three people met at a corner of a street. They all are dressed like cops, so they don't know who's the thief (bad guy). The cops will tell the truth (because they are good), and the thief will tell the truth too to make himself appear like a good cop. They are A, B and C. And they say this:

A:"C's not the thief."
B:"One of you both is the thief!"
C:"I'm not the thief."

Using this information, find out who the thief is.


A's the thief. He says C's not the thief, and B says one of the other two is, which means he must not be. So the only one left is A.
