CHARLOTTE — The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is investigating after a car was driven through the front of a business early Thursday morning.

The incident occurred around 2 a.m. at the Tobacco and Vape Shop on University Pointe Boulevard. Several police vehicles, as well as officers, were observed at the scene.

The manager of the business told Channel 9 that thieves drove the car into the store. A police report confirmed that information; it says the car that drove into the building, a Kia, was stolen from DriveTime, a used car dealership.

He said he was frustrated because the same thing happened the night before.

“We were just in the process of getting it fixed, almost done getting it fixed back to new, and apparently they thought they could get away with it again, so they came back,” the manager explained.

He said the store does have surveillance cameras, and he hopes police can identify the suspects.

The police report for the incident says the suspects stole more than $1,000 worth of tobacco products and caused more than $20,000 in damage.
