Man steals personnel carrier, rams his way into store

On his way to the supermarket the driver of the tank managed to destroy this car

A man in the Russian Arctic has been arrested after he crashed a stolen military armoured vehicle into a shop and stole a bottle of wine.

Police said he stole the snow-covered military vehicle from a local military training organisation in Murmansk.

Struggling to turn around in a narrow street, the man, whom witnesses described as being drunk, proceeded to slam the tank into the window of the "Family" convenience store, the news agency said.

After the crash, the man climbed out of the vehicle's hatch and walked into the aisles of the supermarket before being detained, the police said.


CCTV footage from the store in Apatity shows the man ramming the vehicle, which operates on treads like a tank, into a store's window before climbing in to take a bottle of wine. He then drove it through the town, crushed a nearby auto, turned into the front of a shop, climbed out and stole a bottle of wine.

Onlookers didn't seem particularly concerned about the sight of a military machine on the sidewalk.

The incident occurred in the early morning hours when it is prohibited to sell alcohol, local news outlet HibInform reported.
