Crooks are breaking into liquor stores

Minotti's Wine & Spirits

(Cuyahoga County) - Rocky River Police are searching for thieves who have struck liquor stores in several communities on the east and west sides of Cuyahoga County. 

They broke into Minotti's Wine & Spirits on Detroit Road Sunday night, the third robbery there in as many days. 

The first was Friday night, and the last was Sunday night. Owner Joe Minotti says his store has been in business since 1978, and never before has he experienced robberies like these. 

Minotti tells Newsradio WTAM 1100, in the Sunday heist, 4 men wearing hoodies smashed the two front windows and stole bottles of tequila, cigarettes, and cash. 

Although he declined to say how much, Minotti maintains the three robberies have cost him a lot of money, and now he's going to have to spend more to increase security.
