Do you recognise this pair? Police appeal for information after shop burgled; Runcorn

DETECTIVES from British Transport Police (BTP) are appealing for information after money was stolen from a shop at Runcorn station on Thursday, 13 June 2013. As part of their investigation, officers have released images of 2 men they want to speak to in connection with the incident. Detective Constable Dominic Wilcox is investigating. He explained:- "Around 11.40am, 2 men arrived at the station and approached the kiosk in the waiting room area. 1 of the men engaged a member of staff in conversation, whilst the other went into the small office at the other end of the kiosk, where it is thought he took a large amount of cash. The 2 men then left the station and it is believed they took a taxi to the L8 area of Liverpool."

Officers have followed several lines of enquiry, including circulating images on Police intelligence systems, but to no avail. They are now calling on the public's help to identify the men in the images, as they believe they have key information that could assist with their investigation. DC Wilcox added:- "If you recognise the men pictured, or know their whereabouts, then please get in touch." Anyone with information should contact British Transport Police on Freefone:- 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 quoting:- B2/NWA of 19/07/2013. Alternatively, information can be passed to the independent charity, Crimestoppers, anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.
