Three businesses in Bournemouth and Christchurch were burgled on Monday 6 March.
The first occurred at around 10.20pm, where it is reported that five men attempted to break into Londis in Stour Road, Christchurch, but were disturbed by members of the public and drove off in the direction of Tuckton Bridge.
A short time later, a burglary occurred at around 10.40pm at One Stop in Jewell Road in the Townsend area of Bournemouth.
The third incident occurred at 10.50pm at Tesco Express in Shillingstone Drive in Muscliffe.
Following enquiries, it is believed all three incidents are linked and the offenders were using a dark grey Vauxhall Astra. One man was wearing a distinctive red Puffa-style jacket and a second man was wearing an orange baseball cap.
Investigator Max Surman, of Dorset Police, said: “We are carrying out enquiries into these incidents and I would ask anyone who saw or heard any suspicious activity in the area around the relevant timeframe to please come forward.
“I would ask anyone who lives nearby, or was travelling in the area, to please check their CCTV or dashcam for any footage that may help us identify those responsible.”
