Heavy Equipment Used in Liquor Store Smash-and-Grab

Police in Anchorage, Alaska, were involved in a chase about 3 a.m. Thursday after a front-end loader was seen smashing into the front of a liquor store. Witnesses saw the machinery break the glass at Brown Jug liquor store. The driver went in and took several bottles of liquor. Police pursued the front-end loader, but the driver refused to stop. Once they blocked his path, they arrested 38-year-old Joseph Martin, who failed a sobriety test. He also had liquor bottles in the front-end loader. The next morning, Trina and Gus Gaskov found the fence damaged at their landscaping business and a front-end loader missing.

"He's obviously a good driver, 'cause he was drunk off his butt but he was still driving really good," she said in a phone interview Thursday. "He didn't hit a car or nothing — and making those wide turns — he must have experience driving around the loaders or something."

No one was injured in the chase. Martin was charged with DUI, theft, burglary, criminal mischief, and refusal to submit to a drug test. He is being held until a third party takes responsibility. -via Fark
