We are investigating a burglary at a ground-floor flat in London Road, St Leonards-on-Sea, in which intruders stole a large glass jar containing silver change to an estimated value of £500.
It happened at approximately 2.30am on Sunday (4 August) while the occupants, a man and a woman, were asleep in bed.
Neither was hurt but the suspects were found to have made off with the jar and cash contents.
Detective Constable Cally Fox, investigating, said: "Given its size and contents the jar would have been extremely heavy and we'd like to hear from anyone who may have seen people in the area carrying it away."
They can pass information online or by phoning 101, quoting serial 261 of 04/08.
Alternatively they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously, telephone 0800 555 111.
