Police are appealing for witnesses to a burglary at Graces Place café in Madeira Drive, Brighton, at 12.47am on Monday (17 August).
It is believed sledge hammers were use to make two holes in the wall to get inside the café.
PC James Breeds said: “Making these holes would likely have caused a significant amount of noise and it’s possible members of the public who live nearby may have head something.
“Please contact us if you witnessed this incident or have any other information about who the suspects are to help with our investigation.”
Any witness or anyone with information about the incident is asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 101 quoting serial 158 of 17/08. Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
