CCTV of red spotty onesie thief released following theft at Dewsbury Station

October 16, 2014, 12:16 pm

British Transport Police (BTP) officers have released CCTV images of two masked men, one wearing a red spotty onesie, in the hope that someone may know who they are. Officers would like to speak them in connection with a spate of thefts of monitor screens from Dewsbury railway station.

Three monitors were stolen from the station on the 3rd, 5th and 6th October. All three thefts took place in the evening.

PC Marcus Robinson said, “Three monitors were stolen over a three day period from the station. On each occasion the security surround on the monitors was forced off and the screens stolen.

“The screens, which are expensive and will now have to be replaced, are used to provide up to date travel information to passengers at the station and usually only operate in a commercial environment. They cannot be used as televisions but they may be able to be hooked up to a computer or a gaming station which is one possible line of enquiry we are looking into. First TransPennine Express, who manage the station, have now increased security measures on other screens at their stations to make them more difficult to steal.

“CCTV at the station captured the two people pictured on Monday, 6 October just after 10.50pm when the third screen was stolen. We believe they may be able to assist our enquiries into this incident and are investigating whether they are linked to the other two thefts.

“We are releasing their images in that hope that, despite their faces being covered, someone may recognise their distinctive dress. One of the men is wearing a red polka dot onesie, the other appears to be wearing purple leggings and carrying a spade.”

“If you recognise them, have been offered one of the screens, or have any information that could help our investigation, please contact us.”
