We’d like to speak to him in connection with the theft of an ‘honesty box’ set up for charity.

The incident occurred on Thursday, 5 October at around 5.10pm.

The box, which is placed on a stall with books for sale, which have been donated by the public, is situated at the station ticket office. Proceeds from the honesty box are donated to local charities.

A man entered the station, looked at the books, took one of them and helped himself to the honesty box at the same time before heading to the toilets on platforms one and two, where he hid the box in his jacket and boarded an Arriva Wales service.

Investigating officer Michael Woodward said: “This is the second time in a matter of weeks that cash destined for good causes has been stolen from the station.
“Any theft is despicable but stealing from charity particularly when people have given out of the goodness of their hearts when times are hard financially, is truly abhorrent.

“I am keen to speak to the man in the CCTV images as I believe he holds vital information that can help us investigate this crime.”

Anyone with any information should call 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 citing reference 297 of 27/10/2017.
