Balaclava-clad men reportedly took power tools from two sheds in rural Hertfordshire.
Police said three men, who were wearing dark clothing, gained entry to two sheds in the North Mymms area overnight on Friday, April 22.
Power tools were stolen, which were later found abandoned in a wheelbarrow in nearby woodland.
Additional tools were used to force entry into another building, and a sum of cash and a passport were missing from a safe inside.
Detective Sergeant Daniel Webb, from the Local Crime Unit at Hertfordshire Police, said: "We take rural crime very seriously and have specialist officers within the constabulary who are trained to provide advice and support to the rural community.
"Our enquiries are continuing at this time."
The tools are thought to have been stolen at around 11.30pm from a farm off Dixons Hill Close.
