OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- Oakland police are looking into a liquor store burglary that happened in the early hours on Tuesday when a car drove through the front entrance.
It happened at Eddie's Drive In Liquors just before 3 a.m. at the intersection of College and Taft avenues.
"The group of guys came in and they slammed the door with their van, then got inside. Obviously they grabbed a lot of liquors, cigarettes, the money we have in the registers. This one is our third time in less than two months," said David Shrestha, the co-owner at Eddie's Drive In Liquors.
Oakland police officers arrived within 10 minutes of the alarm sounding off.
Police say the thieves used their get-away car to smash through the chain-locked doors to gain access to the store.
The owner says the robbers made off with top-shelf liquor and cash from the register.
He says the thieves were able to "smash-and-grab" everything in less than five minutes.
Shrestha says he suspects it's the same individuals who've robbed the store in the past.
