Dallas police are asking for help in finding a couple who drove their pickup truck into the Texas Rangers store in Uptown.

Store surveillance footage shows the truck smash through the glass storefront on McKinney Avenue early Saturday morning.

"I'm pretty horrified that anyone would do that," customer Nela Moore said. "This really is Dallas' team right now."

Surveillance cameras caught the truck smashing through the front of the store at 2:30 a.m. The footage shows a man and a woman spend about 30 seconds ransacking the store, stealing T-shirts and other Rangers paraphernalia.

"That's too bad," customer Karen Moore said. "It makes the cost go up for everybody."

The store manager doesn't think the thieves had ever been in the store before because they went straight for the clearance rack with last season's playoff gear instead of high-priced jerseys.

According to the police report, the couple got away with a "large amount of merchandise."

Detectives said they believe the thieves drove a white Ford Dually pickup. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers.
