A FAMILY butchers has been burgled with thieves emptying the charity boxes.
Police are investigating the raid at J Coleman Butchers store in Langham Road, Boxted in the early hours of Saturday, August 17.
A suspect entered the premises and made a messy search and then got into three vehicles in the yard and searched them.
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 who was in the area at that time would probably remember seeing him and I would appeal for them to contact the neighbourhood crime team at Colchester Police Station on 101."
