Police seek information over theft from Northallerton rail passenger
4:01pm Friday 27th September 2013 in News
POLICE are trying to track down a woman they would like to speak to in connection with the theft of money from a train.
British Transport Police say the theft happened on the 16.50am York to Northallerton service on Monday, September 2.
A 41-year-old man, from Gateshead, had taken his wallet out of his pocket to show the train guard his ticket.
When he placed it back in his pocket it fell out and down between the seats. A woman sat behind then quickly moved nearer.
The wallet was later discovered discarded on the train floor, but £100 was missing.
British Transport Police is now appealing for information about the woman, who left the train at Northallerton.
Anyone with information about the theft is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40.
Information can also be passed to the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
The appeal follows the force’s recent launch of Operation Magnum, a campaign designed to help rail passengers keep valuables safe from pickpockets, gadget-grabbers and luggage thieves.
