Sneaky vandals covered CCTV cameras before causing graffiti damage to part of Mexborough Railway Station.
British Transport Police have released CCTV images of three men they are tracing in connection with the vandalism attack, on Wednesday, March 25, at 5.30pm.
The trio are alleged to have covered cameras in paint before writing slogans in a subway underpass used by passengers to get from one platform to the other.
Investigating officer PC Helen White, of British Transport Police, said: “A CCTV engineer at the station raised the alarm when he reported that the CCTV cameras had been sprayed out.
“In addition to this the walls and roof of the subway were also sprayed.
“Two cameras were damaged by the spray paint in an attempt to obscure any view of the offenders.”
She added such vandalism attacks leave the area looking unsightly.
PC White urged anyone who witnesses the incident, or who may know who the men are in the CCTV images to contact British Transport Police.
She added: “Graffiti is criminal damage and costs money to remove.
“We believe the three men in the images could have vital information about the criminal damage and we urge them or anyone who recognises them to come forward to assist with our enquiries.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quoting reference PSUB/B12 of 13/04/2015.
Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
