A digger has been used in a ram raid to steal cash from a Co-op store in Cranbrook.
The JCB was driven into the supermarket on the High Street at about 02:00 GMT. Detectives are now looking for three people in connection with the burglary.
Nobody was injured but the building was damaged and a large amount of cash reported stolen.
The digger remains outside the building and officers recovered another vehicle abandoned in a nearby road that is thought to have been involved.
Det Sgt Jason Booth said: "We remain in the area carrying out inquiries and reviewing CCTV and forensic opportunities. We are looking for three suspects and a third vehicle that may have been used."
