Raiders pulled the front door off a village shop in a failed bid to break into a cash machine.
A green Cherokee 4x4 was used to force open the front door of the Weeting Londis store, which houses the post office, at 10.40pm on Thursday last week.
The thieves attempted to break into a cash machine inside the store but left empty handed.
The 4x4 was abandoned at the scene and the raiders were seen to drive off in a dark coloured Audi hatchback.
Nothing was taken during the theft and the store was delayed in opening on Friday.
Anyone with information should contact Det Con Lee Hall at Thetford CID on the 101 number.
