The man drove the armored vehicle, believed to be an M-1970, through a forest and into the town of Apatity.
It all started when a man in his late-20s, who witnesses would later say seemed drunk, stole an armored personnel carrier from a military driving school, the Guardian reports.
The man drove the heavy vehicle into the city, where he first collided with a parked auto and then drove into a grocery store's window.
The man had stolen the vehicle from a nearby base of a state paramilitary organization, the Volunteer Society for Cooperation with the Army, Aviation and Navy, FlashNord reported.
In the Severnaya Street he first smashed a over a parked vehicle, then drove across the pathway and rammed into a shopwindow.
Nothing was said about stealing a vehicle, but the unidentified man was arrested for being "in possession of a stolen bottle of wine". The Independent notes "the shop was not licensed to sell alcohol that early in the morning". Well call me old fashioned, but when someone drives into a store to steal a bottle of wine, I don't think the shop owner was selling the person any wine.
