Safe stolen from Thatcham Subway in overnight break-in
Thames Valley Police was alerted to the incident, at the Subway store on Bath Road, at around 2.25am following a report that a burglary was taking place there.
All of the offenders are said to have been wearing masks and dark clothing, with one also wearing wellington boots and a large overcoat.
The safe was loaded into the back of the vehicle, which was covered in mud but looked similar to a dark-coloured Subaru estate car, which then headed off in the direction of the Thatcham Garden Centre.
The vehicle had a damaged rear bumper.
Subway has now reopened for business as usual.
Anyone with information or who witnessed the incident should contact PC Helen Giddings via the Thames Valley Police 24-hour number 101, or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. No personal details are taken.
