A man has been sent to prison after helping himself to train passengers’ bags on services out of Kings Cross and Paddington.
Anthony Hinton, of no fixed abode, was nicked after targeting first class carriages and stealing items like bags, cash and a jacket by fancy designer Hugo Boss.
He carried out the crimes while passengers weren’t looking, then left trains before they pulled out of stations.
He was sentenced at Blackfriars Crown Court, and liable to be arrested if found in the area of the stations after his release.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Kirsty Boggi from British Transport Police said: “Hinton boarded trains at some of London’s busiest train stations and each time, went straight to the first class carriage of a train and took bags and coats while people weren’t looking.
“This was an offence he committed a number of times and so I am pleased he is now behind bars and prevented from doing this again.”
