A member of the public saw the offender at 1am on the roof of the Lloyds Bank in Cranbrook Road, Gants Hill, making what they described as a “cutting and pulling” motion.
When police officers attended, they discovered Godwin-Jones crouched near an air conditioning unit.
The top of the unit had been cut off and a pair of pliers were found nearby.
