Detectives investigating a series of raids on railway station ticket offices have warned the public not to approach anyone stealing from machines. CCTV footage has been released showing men smashing into the vending machines using angle grinders and pickaxes.
Detectives are trying to trace those involved, but say anyone who sees something suspicious should contact British Transport Police rather than approach the gang as they are likely to be armed.
Detective Constable Nick Thompson, leading the investigation said it's believed all the attacks were down to the same gang. He added:
The money stolen in these attacks really does pale into insignificance when you consider the cost of the damage – which is estimated as thirty-three times the value of the cash taken. These thefts haven’t just hit the rail industry financially, they’ve also caused disruption and inconvenience to passengers, with ticket machines taken out of service for repairs.
