The owners of a family run toy store in the United Kingdom, are asking people for help in identifying a thief who robbed their business.

Store owners Susan and Richard Willcox of Devon, said that the thief was in their store for about four hours on Friday night.

He did not just grab just anything from the shelf.

He carefully chose some high-end Hornby model trains.

The thief stole dozens of miniature engines and carriages from the Paignton Model Shop on 60 Hyde Road.

The store owners said that the suspect meticulously wrapped every item with bubble wrap so that they won’t break in transit.

The robber had removed the surveillance video from the wall as soon as he came into the store, but he forgot to take it with him when he left, leaving police with photos of him.
