Police have appealed for information after thieves broke into an office at Aughton Park railway station in Ormskirk and stole cash from a safe inside.

The burglary took place shortly before 2am on Thursday, July 23.

Investigating Officer DC Dominic Wilcox said: “At around 1.50am, two men approached the entrance door to the station office and tried to force their way inside. After repeated attempts they headed to the rear of the station office and gained entry by removing a metal grill and a window unit.

“Once inside they smashed open the safe and took an amount of cash. Before leaving they sprayed cleaning fluid across the floor and desks.”

DC Wilcox added: “CCTV shows that a couple of hours prior to the burglary, one of the same two men disabled the alarm system to the station office so that it would not activate when they returned.”

Both men were wearing hoods, one was wearing Nike tracksuit bottoms and a white or grey snood and the other a North Face coat.

Officers urge anyone who has information about the burglary to come forward immediately to assist with their enquiries.
