TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Authorities are searching for whoever crashed a stolen pickup truck into a Tulsa convenience store, causing tens of thousands of dollars in damage.

Police say the truck plowed through the glass doors a Wolf Point convenience store early Wednesday, smashing counters and crushing merchandise. Tulsa television station KOTV reports that police believe the driver was trying to steal the store's ATM.

The convenience store was closed at the time of the collision and the building's burglary alarm went off after the truck smashed through the doors. Police believe that spooked the would-be thief, who fled in the truck.

The truck, which had been reported stolen from a nearby business, was found burning two blocks away from the convenience store. Tulsa firefighters extinguished the blaze.

No arrests have been made.
