**Answer is: Chris**

Don’t forget that **only one of them tells the truth.**

Alice | T | F | F |

Bob | F | T | F |

Chris | F | F | T |

- If Alice is telling the truth, then Chris is the thief.
- If Bob is telling the truth, well, it is impossible because Chris would be telling the truth too.
- If Chris is telling the truth, then Alice must be lying, and she must be the thief. But this is impossible, because then Bob would be telling the truth too.

So, Chris is the thief.
