Takeaway-loving thieves intent on securing their fish and chip fix have stolen up to $1000 worth of frozen food.

The thieves made off with the large amount of goods from a storage container at Masterton's Mr Chips Chinese Takeaway overnight on Tuesday.

The haul, worth between $500-$1000, included commercially-packaged chicken nuggets, crab sticks, fish balls and spring rolls.

Senior Sergeant Warwick Burr said the break-in at the Chapel St store happened some time between 10.30pm on Tuesday and 10am on Wednesday.

Anyone with any information can contact Masterton Police directly on 06 370 0300, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
