Police appeal for help after �700 stolen from Exmouth train traveller

British Transport Police officers are appealing for help after a 36-year-old Exmouth man had cash stolen from his wallet while travelling by train from Exmouth to Barnstaple.

Officers have released CCTV images of a man they believe could help with their investigation of the incident, which took place on Friday, September 30, 2011, on the 1050hrs Exmouth to Barnstaple service.

Sergeant Dave Mannion, investigating officer, said the Exmouth victim left the train at Exeter Central rail station, realised he had left his wallet on board and alerted rail staff.

Sgt Mannion said: “The guard on board the train found the missing wallet but around �700 was missing from it.

“Enquiries are ongoing and, after viewing CCTV images from on board the train, I am keen to speak to the man pictured as I believe he will have information which I believe can assist this investigation.
