THIEVES smashed their way in to a supermarket and grabbed a haul of televisions and computer consoles.
The attack happened on Christmas Day at the Asda store in Byron Place, Seaham.
The yobs broke through a window at the front of the store by throwing a drain cover through the glass at about 8.30pm.
Four PlayStation 3 consoles, including two with the game Battlefield, an Xbox, and two televisions, worth a combined total of £1,643, were taken in the raid, which lasted just four minutes.
Detectives believe a car was used to take away the goods from the scene and they are now reviewing CCTV images as part of inquiries.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Durham Constabulary on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
