DETECTIVES investigating a break-in at a rail depot where a crook stole diesel have released CCTV images as an attempt to appeal to the public and help their search.

The depot at Adwick Junction was broken into and 500 litres of fuel stolen from a generator.

British Transport Police has launched an investigation and images of a man they would like to trace in connection with the incident.

They are appealing to the public to come forward and help push forward their fuel theft probe.

The incident is understood to have happened just before 8pm on Wednesday, March 28.

Det Cons Ian Grice, the investigating officer, said: “We have undertaken initial enquiries in an attempt to identify this man as we believe he can assist us with our enquires but to no avail, if you know who the man is I would urge you to contact us.”

Several of Doncaster’s rail depots have been a hot-spot for thieves who have previously been found to steal copper and other metal in a bid to sell on for thousands of pounds.

Doncaster has been rife with these type of offences which have caused huge delays for commuters after thieves have struck, in particular stripping rail cable wires, which has also in turn cost huge amounts of money to repair and major disruption.

Anyone with information regarding the Adwick theft are urged to call the British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 quoting background reference seven of April 3, 2012.

Alternatively, people can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
