Coulsdon South station bike thief hunted by British Transport Police
Police have released images of man they want to speak to after a passenger's bike was stolen from Coulsdon South station.
A 42-year-old woman, who left her bike securely fixed to the station's rack at 8am on Tuesday, September 10, returned at 6pm to find it missing and the lock cut.
British Transport Police (BTP) have appealed for help to find the thief.
It comes after BTP launched Operation Wiggins, a nationwide initiative to crackdown on cycle theft at train stations.
Do you recognise this man?
Police Constable Mark Chambers said: "Sadly bicycles are a popular target for thieves but there are lots of things people can do to make sure their property is adequately marked and secured.
"It’s important to remember to register your bike and ensure a solid lock is used to secure it.
"If a bike is adequately marked, it makes it much easier to identify and therefore helps reduce the risk of becoming a victim of bike theft.
“If you recognise the man pictured, or know his whereabouts, then please get in touch."
Anyone with information can contact British Transport Police on 0800 405 040 quoting B4/ LSA of 30/10/2013 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
