POLICE are appealing for help after caffeine crooks made off with a Costa Coffee sign.

The advertising board was taken from the Swansea High Street station of the coffee chain in the early hours of the morning, and British Transport Police (BTP) have issued photographs of two people they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.

BTP sergeant Steve Dawkins said: “I would like to appeal to members of the public to come forward and help us identify these people, who we believe can assist us with this investigation.”

The theft happened around 3.50am on December 17 but has only now been made public.

Can you help? Call British Transport Police on 0800 405040 quoting reference WSA/B6 of 10/01/2014 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111

    How is it the more serious the offence the more blurry and unrecognisable culprit(s) appear in CCTV imagery, these however are of a good enough definition to ensure these two will be looking over their shoulders over the next few days?

    They probably bought a coffee and muffin there and thought a free sign was included in the price.

    Such a heinous crime that seemingly is all that BTP Swansea have to investigate at the present time. Perhaps it's time that the BTP were disbanded if this is what they consider worthy of a press release! The BTP are an useless force that has had it's day & needs to go the same way as the Royal Parks Police (& others)-into the undergrowth!

    When I read "Costa Coffee theft" I thought it was referring to the price that Costa Fortune charges for its coffee!
