More than £600 of meat was stolen from an insecure outbuilding at a hotel.
Police said thieves struck at Springfield House Hotel in Wheel Lane, Pilling, near Garstang, between 3pm and 9pm on December 23.
They took meat from a storage freezer including turkey crowns, shoulders of lamb and lamb shanks, duck fillets, pork, bacon, gammon and geese.
The people responsible also helped themselves to cheese and a crate of lager.
PC Robert Tugman said: “If anyone noticed any suspicious activity in the area then we would urge them to contact police.
“It is likely the offenders could have tried to sell on the meat in the street, in pubs or possibly from the back of a vehicle.
“Members of the public being offered such items for sale are urged to contact police on 101 with as much information as possible.”
