Once inside, the man hops the counter and appears to be looking through a cigarette pack holder. Once he finds what he wants, he walks back out and runs away on foot, leaving behind the truck and the wreckage he caused.
According to deputies, the pack of cigarettes was all the man took.
Deputies also released a video of a second vehicle that was seen near the store. They are looking to speak with that driver.
Deputies are asking anyone who recognizes the man to contact Investigator Al Tutland at 320-983-8426 or the Mille Lacs County Dispatch Center at 320-983-8257.
