CORPUS CHRISTI -- Another Corpus Christi smoke shop was robbed at gunpoint and that's the third one this month.
Police aren't sure if the three crimes are related, but they're looking into it.
Meanwhile, we received surveillance video of the latest robbery.
In the video, you can see two men walk into S&G Glassworks on Kostoryz Monday night.
They make their way to the back of the store, as they do, the camera gets a nice shot of them.
Then, they return with an employee, his hands in the air, a gun pointed at his back.
Later, a third man in a red hoodie comes into the store.
The three take a few things from the counters and shelves and steal a couple hundred dollars from the cash register.
One of the store's owners, who didn't want to be identified, told us she hopes police crack this case soon.
She said, "Eventually they're going to get caught. Corpus is small enough where I believe a lot of people will recognize them."
The store's owners say -- since this happened -- they'll add security cameras to the outside of S&G Glassworks.
They'll also make sure two employees work together at all times.
This is the first time someone robbed their smoke shop, and the owners want to make sure it's the last.
The one owner said, "It just makes me sick that somebody would take advantage of us like that."
The owners say some of their employees recognized the men in the video as customers, but they couldn't identify them.
