Man in Tank Invades Storefront to Nab Bottle of Wine

Onlookers were stunned when a man drove an armored personnel carrier down a street and into a convenience store window display, stumbled about, and then drove away. Russian authorities later arrested the man for possessing what appeared to be a stolen bottle of wine.

The man never explained his motive for the larcenous escapade, but police confirmed that the vehicle had been stolen from a private motorsport training facility. According to eyewitnesses, the tank driver appeared to struggle with making a difficult turn before partially running over a Daewoo sedan parked nearby, which might possibly indicate that the man intended to purchase the wine before accidentally plowing into the storefront.

Ironically, such a purchase would still have been illegal, as the store was not licensed to sell alcohol that early in the morning.

Pictures and comments posted to social media confirmed the account in great detail. One user narrated his video footage thusly:

"Basically some guy stole an armored vehicle ... and went into a shop to top up his stocks in the morning,"

According to local news sources, the man was arrested without incident.

Potential Preaching Angles: People can get caught up into compounding their sins. The deceitfulness of an initial sin can then lead a person deeper into sin.
