A Russian man in the far-northern Murmansk region crashed an armored personnel carrier into a supermarket on Wednesday in an attempt to steal a bottle of wine. A person living nearby was able to record the weird crime (see above), and many people photographed the aftermath. Having said that, it's still something to see someone take that vehicle and plow it into a storefront for some wine. He stole the APC from a "motorsport training ground" near Apatity, Russia.

According to regional news outlet, the unnamed culprit took the vehicle from a driving school, before failing to negotiate a bend, destroying a auto, and crashing into the shop front in the north-western town of Apatity. Photos from the scene showed that he crushed at least one auto - a Daewoo. The guy, who was apparently already drunk - you'd have to be wouldn't you? - didn't even get to enjoy his wine. Witnesses believed the man was intoxicated at the time, which seems apparent. The video shows people walking by nonchalantly and getting within an arm's reach of the vehicle.

Here, he chose to jump out of the vehicle and into the shop to steal a bottle of wine, the local online Hibinform.ru reports. He reportedly didn't resist arrest.
