Witness appeal after burglary at Aughton Park Station, Ormskirk

THE British Transport Police is appealing for information after an office at Aughton Park Railway Station, Ormskirk, was broken into and cash stolen from a safe inside. The burglary took place shortly before 2am on Thursday, 23 July 2015.  Investigating Officer DC Dominic Wilcox said:- "At around 1.50am, 2 men approached the entrance door to the station office and tried to force their way inside. After repeated attempts they headed to the rear of the station office and gained entry by removing a metal grill and a window unit. Once inside they smashed open the safe and took an amount of cash. Before leaving they sprayed cleaning fluid across the floor and desks. CCTV shows that a couple of hours prior to the burglary, 1 of the same 2 men disabled the alarm system to the station office so that it would not activate when they returned."

Both men were wearing hoods, one was wearing Nike tracksuit bottoms and a white or grey snood and the other a North Face coat. Officers urge anyone who has information about the burglary to come forward immediately to assist with their enquiries.  Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on:- 0800 40 50 40, or text:- 61016, quoting reference PSUB/B12 of 21/08/2015. Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on:- 0800 555 111.
