Fifty vintage bottles of wine have been stolen from a Hatfield restaurant after a break-in.
A Taste of India, in Salisbury Square, was broken into on Valentine’s Day.
Police believe the thieves will be trying to sell the stolen booze and have appealed for information.
A fire door was forced open and the thief helped themselves to around 50 bottles, including spirits and speciality wines.
An iPad, a red bin and an old cash register were also taken.
PC Andy Finnan said: “Some of the bottles stolen were hugely valuable, both in terms of worth and sentiment to the victim.
“It is thought that those responsible for the theft may be trying to sell the bottles on and I would urge anyone who may have been offered high-quality wine for sale to contact me immediately.
“I would also like to hear from anyone who has any other information about the burglary.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Finnan via the Hertfordshire Constabulary non-emergency number, 101, quoting crime reference B2/15/561.
