British Transport Police (BTP) officers have released CCTV images of two women they want to speak to after a necklace was stolen from a bag left on board a train between Kettering and Corby.
The incident happened on Friday, December 19, shortly after 1pm on board the 12.01 St Pancras to Corby train.
The victim, a 25-year-old man from Reading, had boarded the service at St Pancras.
He alighted at Kettering and accidentally left his bag on board the train.
The bag was handed to rail staff at Corby station and returned to the victim where it was discovered a necklace that he had bought earlier was missing.
Upon reviewing CCTV on the train and at the station, a woman, who was accompanied by another female, was seen to take the bag.
Both women then act suspiciously in the train’s vestibule area and then leave the train at Corby.
They both went into the station’s toilets with the bag then came out a short while later before handing the bag into lost property.
PC Laura Kilbourne said: “We have undertaken extensive enquiries it an attempt to trace these two women but to no avail.
“I am now appealing for members of the public to come forward if they recognise them as they may have information or details regarding this theft.”
