“I would be grateful if you would supply the following details:

TfL does not hold the requested information. While we hold some data on the number of reported thefts on different transport modes under our jurisdiction (you may be interested in the data published on our website here: https://tfl.gov.uk/corporate/publications-and-reports/crime-and-incident-bulletins), we do not have that data broken down by specific item.
It is possible that either the British Transport Police (BTP) or the Metropolitan Police may hold some of the detail you are after.
Details of how to contact the BTP for information can be found online here:
