Burglars have stolen money from charity boxes after breaking in to a shop in Essex.
The burglary happened at J Coleman Butchers store in Langham Road, Boxted, in the early hours of August 17.
The suspect searched the premises before getting into three vehicles in the yard and searching them.
The only thing that appears to have been taken was money from five charity boxes in the shop.
Pc Haley Langmead said: “This is a despicable thing to do.
“The suspect unusually left sweet wrappers over the floor and he is seen between 3am and 3.40am on CCTV as a white male with his head covered with a grey sweatshirt.
“He also took a blue Slazenger rucksack from the staff room and had this on his back when he left.”
Anyone with information should call the neighbourhood crime team at Colchester police station on 101.
