THIEVES broke into the Hastings Club, 3am, Wednesday 31 May, after unscrewing the lock on the front door and rewiring the alarm to prevent it activating.
Police said three men drove up to the club in Marine Parade in a stolen black Holden wearing black clothing, gloves and balaclavas.
Two of the men then forced an internal door with a jemmy bar.
One was captured on CCTV and is described as being Caucasian with a stocky build. He used an angle grinder to try to cut open an ATM behind the bar. He got away with a small amount of cash. Police arrived when another alarm was activated but the men had already driven off.
Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
