Detective Sergeant Andrew Compton said there had been thefts of cash tills and safes in central Wellington, through to the Hutt Valley, the Kapiti Coast and Otaki and Levin.

He said the offenders seemed to target a specific business and visit a different location each night.

"This is a timely reminder to commercial business owners to be vigilant and to secure all cash at the end of each day. If you see a burglary in progress, or any suspicious behaviour, contact police straightaway by calling 111," Mr Compton said.

The police wanted help identifying one man caught on CCTV footage at one of the burglaries, as well as any other information about the thefts.
