It is believed a shirtless man tried to break into a store, but instead drove off with a Harris County (TX) Precinct 6 SUV.
In the video from the store, you can see the shirtless suspect, identified by investigators as Brandon Ramiro Cantu, walk to the door of the police SUV, get in and sit for about 15 to 20 seconds before he calmly backs out of the parking lot, and drives off, reports KTRK.
The deputy constable apparently left the car running and unlocked while he entered the store to investigate the attempted break-in, although he may have thought it was locked.
Cantu allegedly ran to his ex-wife's house, assaulted her and another man, then ran away as officers arrived.
A helicopter and police dogs eventually found Cantu hiding next to a horse stable nearby. He was arrested and is currently in jail.
Cantu faces four felony counts, including aggravated assault of a family member, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, auto theft, and evading arrest.
