A thief who snatched two iPhones from a shop in St Pancras station is being hunted by police.

In both thefts, which took place on February 24 and August 18, the man walked calmly into the Vodaphone store, forced the phone out of its cradle and made a run for it.

The phones were blocked immediately, meaning they are unable to make a receive calls or use the internet, limiting their value.

Police have confirmed the same suspect is wanted for both thefts and have released CCTV footage of a man they would like to speak to.

He is around 5 ft 6 ins in height, 20 to 26-years-old, with dark hair and wearing sunglasses. On both occasions he was carrying a red personal organiser.

PC Andrew Dishman, the investigating officer based at St Pancras, said: “We want to hear from anyone who recognises the man pictured, or who is offered an iPhone in suspicious circumstances by anyone matching his description.”

Anyone with information is asked to call British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
