Essex Police are continuing to search for two men after a safe containing a four-figure sum of cash was stolen from Colchester Zoo.

Police first issued a CCTV appeal last month after the zoo’s admissions office was broken into around 2.40am on January 31.

A safe containing a four-figure sum of cash was taken during the burglary, while a five-figure sum worth of damage was caused to the site. A 29-year-old man from Colchester was later arrested on suspicion of burglary and attempted burglary following the appeal on April 23.

He has since been released under investigation.

Police would still like to speak to the two men pictured in the hope they can aid detectives in their investigation.
