John Legend is breathing a sigh of relief after his luggage was stolen this week.

According to the New York Daily News the singer landed at JFK Airport on Thursday when a Delta airlines greeter left Legend’s bag unattended. Someone grabbed the bag and ran off.

The suitcase contained some expensive items including a pair of Cartier cuff links, valued at $30,000. There was also a lot of designer clothes and a $500 pair of glasses.

Airport security and the police used surveillance video to find and arrest the suspect shortly after the luggage was stolen.  John’s bag was returned to him a short time later.

TMZ reports the police suggested that the thief was actually John’s appointed driver who has had multiple problems with the law at JFK in the past.  Legend reportedly said that this was not the case.
