Russian Man Rams Shopfront in Armored Vehicle, Steals Wine

A Russian man has been detained after a video game-style burglary aboard a stolen armored vehicle north of the Arctic Circle. 

The man rammed into a shopfront after losing control of the stolen armored vehicle and hitting a parked car in the Murmansk region, the FlashNord news site reported Wednesday. 

The man then entered the store to steal a bottle of wine, with which he was later arrested, an unnamed law enforcement official was cited as saying. 

The stolen armored personnel carrier belonged to a local paramilitary sports society driving school, the news site reported.
