Mobile phones and tablets were amongst the items stolen after “at least four people” smashed their way into a Cambridgeshire electronics store.
Thieves smashed through brickwork at the back of Currys PC World at the Boulevard Retail Park in Peterborough at around 3am on Friday, January 31.
Suspects left a baseball cap, an axe and a damaged TV behind after the early-morning smash and grab which also saw a metal fence damaged.
Detective Sergeant Justin Howard said: "A substantial amount of noise is likely to have been made when the brickwork was smashed, and the metal fence was damaged.
"Burglary can have a devastating effect on businesses, and we are keen to find those responsible.
