A man rammed an armored personnel carrier into a shop window before climbing through the rubble to steal a bottle of wine in a town in northern Russian Federation on Wednesday morning, according to local media and video posted on social media.

The armoured vehicle - known in the West as an M-1970 - was left in front of the shop.

The man gets back into the carrier and rams it into the store a second time.

A Russian man has been arrested after he reportedly stole an armoured vehicle and crashed it into a shop in a town north of the Arctic Circle.

Russian TV channel Vesti said the suspect was "bored" so he took the vehicle from the driving school operated by DOSAAF, a volunteer group that cooperates with military forces in Russia.

In the Severnaya Street he first smashed a over a parked auto, then drove across the pathway and rammed into a shopwindow. Reuters notes that witnesses at the scene "did not seem particularly disturbed by the incident".

The man, believed to be drunk, climbed out of the hatch and walked into the aisles before being detained, the police spokeswoman said. He reportedly didn't resist arrest.
