Thieves attempted to ram raid the Go Outdoors store in Sheffield with a stolen van last night.
A white Mercedes van was stolen from a property on Stainton Road, near Hunters Bar, at some point yesterday evening.
It was then used in an attempted ram raid at the outdoor clothing and equipment store on Hill Street, near Bramall Lane, at about midnight.
No entry was gained to the store and nothing was stolen.
A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “Officers are appealing for information or witnesses to the theft of the vehicle and the attempted break in.
“Anyone with information is asked to call South Yorkshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
