NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Nashville business owner has a bizarre story after a man broke in to his shop, stole a car, and crashed it-and it was all caught on camera.

It was a bold burglar, breaking into a business with eight live cameras and several others. The only step the suspect took to conceal the crime was to wear gloves, but those gloves happened to be fingerless.

Employees at Blue Car on Nolensville Pike are just glad no one was hurt and they’re already back open.

The crime took place at 5:30 a.m.Sunday morning.

The burglar first tried squatting down and prying the door open. When that didn’t work, he picked up a ceramic flower pot and threw it through the glass door.

Once inside, surveillance shows the suspect opening several drawers before finding a set of keys to a white Nissan truck.

“I honestly think he was just looking for the cash,” employee Parsa Zandieh told News 2.

The suspect then backed up the truck and smashed into another car before leaving the scene.

Zandieh said he didn’t get very far. The suspect reportedly crashed and totaled the truck on the Interstate 65 South ramp at Harding Place.

It was then when someone stopped to help the man, who was badly bleeding.

“They stopped him and asked him if he needs help,” Zandieh explained. “Then he refused (assistance) because he was obviously doing something bad.”

The suspect still landed in the hospital, where Zandieh said police were able to track him down.

“I’m just glad no one else was hurt and everything else is OK,” she said.

It’s not yet known who the suspect is or if or when he’ll be charged. Further information wasn’t available.
