Police investigating a double-theft at Leeds station have issued a picture of a man they believe can help with their enquiries.

Officers from British Transport Police (BTP) are also appealing for the victim of one of the thefts to come forward.

The incidents happened on Saturday July 5 around 9.15pm.

PC Ian Connor said: “A man entered Sainsbury’s at Leeds station, took a bottle of wine from a shelf and placed it in his trouser pocket.

“He then left the shop, walked across the station’s north concourse towards the JD Wetherspoon pub, where he removed a jacket from a bike parked outside.”

The man left with both items, but the owner of the stolen jacket has not reported the incident.

PC Connor added: “We would like the owner of the jacket to come forward. We would also like people to look at the image we are issuing.

“I believe the man in the picture can help with our enquiries into these thefts.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quoting reference PSUB/B3 of 18/07/2014.
