As ever, the balance of probability points to someone coming down the railway line and robbing from an area assumed to be easy prey.
Being assumed "easy prey" is down to word of mouth between robbers (ref the recent spate of stories in the Echo with similar evidence.....Crime within a mile of a station and , if lucky, the culprit comes from Grays or Plaistow or Basildon).
When are the British Transport Police and the Essex constabulary going to decide who is responsible and post an employee at the stations to ensure there is no vandalism, violence, fare dodging, "swag", CCTV's working, etc, etc, etc.

When are home owners going to take responsability and fit a decent alarm to their property. A wouldbe burglar would look at mine see the alarm, look next door see no alarm and.. go there . Not nice for my neighbour but could be worse

* going to decide who is responsible *


If they knew who were responsible wouldn't they just arrest them?
