SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - One Shreveport business owner will spend his new years rebuilding after burglars rammed a van through his store.
Only KSLA was at the scene after a stolen van crashed straight through The Tops and Bottoms Clothing store on W 84th Street and Linwood just after 5AM.

The suspects stole the van from The Pilgrim Travelers' Missionary Baptist Church just down the street then stole some clothes and shoes after crashing the van into the store.

The pastor of the church was at the scene to explain how the burglars managed to get his van through the bricks and bars, all the way to the back of the store.

"They used this large brick and put it on the accelerator to get inside the door and steal merchandise.

The owner of the store says this is not the first time he has been burgled.

The suspects are still on the loose and if you have any information you can call Crimestoppers at 673-7373.
