 Do you know these men? 
We’d like to speak to them in connection with the theft of two transformers from a power signal box in Doncaster.
Just before 6.30pm on Thursday 22 March, two men broke into the signal box at St Sepulchre Gate and attached two chains to the transformers before dragging them out of the yard. 

The transformers stolen are used as a power source for railway signalling only and cannot be used for any other purpose. 

Due to their size and weight we believe they would have then been transported by a truck or van.

We have undertaken a number of enquiries into this theft and are now releasing CCTV of the incident and are hoping to trace the two men captured on it. 

We will also be visiting scrap metal dealers across the region in an attempt to trace the transformers, both have individual identification markers and numbers.

If you recognise the men pictured please contact BTP by calling 0800 40 50 40 or texting 61016 quoting reference 85 of 3 April.
