A red mini-van slammed into a Cisco NYC clothing store in an apparent crash-and-grab burglary on the city’s West Side.
Surveillance video was released Wednesday, showing at least 20 people -- most of them wearing masks and carrying large garbage sized bags -- rush inside the store.
Police received a call at 4:15 a.m. Wednesday due to a burglar alarm going off at 4025 W. Madison.
When police arrived at the scene, they found the mini-van inside the front of the store and the thieves were gone.
Thieves were in the store for only two minutes, and managed to get away with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of expensive shoes and jeans.

No one was inside the store at the time of the smash-and-grab. It's also not known whether the van used in the burglary also was stolen.
