They would have taken more from Farmway Ltd in Fairmoor but were disturbed by a member of the public and made off.
One man is described as being white, average height and of stocky build, aged in his 30s. He had brown/grey messy hair and was wearing dark clothing. The other two men are both described as white and of average build, aged in their 20s. They were both wearing baseball caps, tracksuit-style bottoms and dark tops.
