A Collier Row supermarket has been targeted by alcohol thieves for the third time in four months.
Two men kicked in the right-hand front door pane of the Tesco metro store in Collier Row Lane at around 3.20am on Saturday.
The duo thought to be a white and black man, escaped with an unknown quantity of spirits.
One worker, who asked not to be named, believes the haul was worth around £600.
The white thief was dressed all in black and was carrying a white carrier bag; his accomplice was wearing a white hoodie, black trousers and was holding a dark rucksack.
Police suspect one or other of the pair is responsbile for near-identical break-ins at the store earlier this year.
On May 7, a hooded man wearing white gloves escaped with 19 bottles of various spirits, after smashing his way in through the same front door pane.
And on May 31, a white man, wearing a balaclava and white gloves again smashed his way in through the pane to make off with bottles of spirits.
He was wearing black jeans, a black hooded top stitched with University of Miami in bright green letters at the front.
Anyone with information on any of these crimes should contact Havering Police on: 0300 123 12 12.
