Thefts of defibrillators – London

2 min read
British Transport Police officers are releasing images of a man following a series of thefts of defibrillators across London stations.
The incidents have occurred at:
  • Loughton rail station on 2 April at 3pm
  • Woodford rail station on 5 April at 12.55am
  • Stratford rail station on 2 April at 10.15pm
  • Bow Road rail station on 2 April at 1pm
  • Leytonstone rail station on 5  April at 5.40am
The man, on every occasion, approached the defibrillator cabinet at the station, opened it up and took the defibrillator out. He then either placed it into a bag or under his jacket and left the station.
Investigating officer DC Angie Gates said: “We believe that all five incidents are linked and I am keen to speak to anyone who may hold information or knows the person in the CCTV image, who I am keen to speak to and who I believe has information that could help us.
“Defibrillators can save lives and it’s really disappointing that these have been stolen.”
Anyone with any information can contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 quoting reference 349 10/06/2016.
