Police have appealed for public help to catch three people behind a brazen burglary where a sea container with $100,000 of mining equipment inside was stolen during an early morning raid.

Detectives from the regional investigations unit have released CCTV of the early morning raid on December 28 and asked anyone with information to come forward.
