A large vehicle was used to steal a skip containing metal cables from Synergy Metal trading on Bland Street on Wednesday 21 April at about 8pm, according to South Yorkshire Police.
The vehicle is described as a green eight wheeler HGV, police said.
It's thought two suspects jumped over a fence to gain entry into the yard and then cut the gate locks with the skip then loaded onto the back of the vehicle before driving off, police added.
South Yorkshire Police are keen to hear from anybody who may have information that could help their enquiries.
If anybody has seen the HGV or the skip from the photos, you can get in touch with police via 101 quoting incident number 869 of 21 April 2021.
