CCTV footage has been released as police hunt for a man who broke into a Brentford museum and helped himself to cash from a donation box.
Hounslow borough commander Raj Kohli has launched an appeal to hunt down two suspects in connection with the burglary at the The London Museum of Water and Steam on Green Dragon Lane.
A recording, shown on BBC Crimewatch Roadshow on Thursday (June 9) morning, shows one of the men walking around the kitchen and taking a knife before slashing the donation box open and stealing around £200 in cash.
The male suspect is described as white, 30 to 40-years-old, wearing a dark woolly hat, beige/light coloured hooded jacket and beige garden style gloves.
The crime took place on March 26 at around 9pm where suspect one is believed to have entered the building through a window.
He walks around the ground floor, checking the tills, safe, and cupboards in the kitchen for around 25 minutes.
The man then picks up a knife and uses it to cut the plastic off the donation box and steals the cash, police said.
As well as taking off with around £200, the man has damaged the charity box which cost the museum around £600 to fix.
The man hands the money over to a second man stood outside before leaving through the window and squeezing through metal security bars.
Police are also looking for the second white male suspect who was outside the building and was wearing a dark coloured puffa jacket.
The pair left the site at around 9.45pm.
On Monday (June 6), police released an image of two men in connection with a violent home burglary in Feltham , where a woman was knocked out, tied up and held at gunpoint.
