Three men break into Tooting railway station stealing safe containing cash

Wimbledon Guardian: Do you recognise this man? Do you recognise this man?

Three men broke into Tooting railway station and stole a safe containing cash.

Just before midnight on Friday, May 2, three men entered the station through the main entrance, loitered in the booking hall for a few minutes, and used a tool to force their way into an office where they stole a safe.

Wimbledon Guardian:

They used a small trolley to wheel the metal safe away.

Detectives from British Transport Police (BTP) have released CCTV images of men they wish to speak to in connection with the theft.

Detective Constable Rachel Smith, of BTP, said: “The men used a small trolley to wheel the metal safe away, which might have created quite a bit of noise and would have been an unusual sight that people may remember.

“Thankfully the station is fitted with CCTV cameras and I’m confident someone will recognise the men pictured, especially the two where we can clearly see their faces.

“I am very keen to speak to these men as I believe they might be able to greatly assist the investigation.

Wimbledon Guardian:

“If you think you know who they are, or witnessed the incident and have not yet spoken to us, please give us a call.”

Wimbledon Guardian:

Anyone with information should contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quoting reference SSUB/B5 of 13/06/2014, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Is this the quality of the CCTV at these stations? Not very inspiring for late night travellers using these facilities. Come on Network Rail & Southern, fit some proper cameras. Next time it could be a night time mugging or worse.

I'd have no problem identifying these muppets if I had pixelated vision. The money the railway charges it's customers you'd have thought it would be enough to fit decent cameras.

Suppose we can thank the shutting of ticket offices and cutting of staff for this. But I expect all the Railway chiefs execs have awarded themselves nice big pay rises.
