Detroit police are investigating if a truck used to smash into a liquor store is connected to a string of 25 others reported this year alone. 

State Liquor is in Detroit's west side along Puritan near Schaefer is the latest victim. 

Security video shows a truck backing into the door three times before gaining entry. One man with a mask on enters the store, while the driver remains in the car and another man acts as a "lookout." 

"It's unfortunate that we still have to deal with this all the time, every year, every time, ya know?" said Randy Wadie, the co-owner of State Liquor. 

The three men were only there for about three minutes. Police arrived shortly after but it was too late, the men ran off. They did have enough time to destroy the ATM inside State Liquor. 

It is not clear if this incident is related to 25 smash and grabs police say five men are responsible for. Police say these smash and grabs date back to January of this year.
