Apatity, Murmansk Oblast, Russia : A man stole an armored tracked vehicle from the local paramilitary driving school DOSAAF and started to drive through the streets in Apatity, a town in the Murmansk region home to the Kola Science Centre.

In the Severnaya Street he first smashed a over Daewoo car parked nearby, then drove across the pathway and rammed into a shop window of the “Family” convenience store. Here, he decided to jump out of the vehicle and into the shop to steal a bottle of wine.

Footage shared on social media showed the man subsequently exiting the vehicle through its hatch, briefly inspecting the damage, and entering the shop through the broken window.

He was later arrested in possession of a stolen bottle of wine, Hibinform said. The shop was not licensed to sell alcohol that early in the morning, the agency added.

Witnesses visible in the footage did not seemed particularly disturbed by the incident.

“Basically some guy stole an armored vehicle… and went into a shop to top up his stocks in the morning,” the social media user described, whilst filming the snow-covered scene out of his window.

The man, in his late twenties, did not resist arrest, RIA news agency reported.
