Robbers rig car to smash into ID liquor store

Police in Idaho say three people ransacked a Twin Falls liquor store by rigging a driverless vehicle that smashed through the front doors so they could get inside. A deputy director of the Idaho State Liquor Division says the 2002 Pontiac had a pipe jammed between the seat and accelerator when it crashed and wiped out the bourbon section.

Police say surveillance video of the Thursday morning break-in shows two men and a woman wearing masks and carrying bags rush in behind the car and take bottles of alcohol before running away.

Investigators say they have spoken to the owner of the vehicle, which had not been reported stolen.

The liquor official tells The Times-News he doesn't have an estimate on the damage to the store or how much liquor was stolen or destroyed.
