WICHITA FALLS (AP) — A stalled motorcycle has kept a thief from escaping with a shopping cart full of loot from a North Texas hardware store.

Wichita Falls police are looking for a man who on Monday rolled a cart out of a store without paying. Police say the biker used a cord and hooked the shopping cart to his cycle, then tried to speed away.

The shopping cart tipped, the thief stopped to upright the cart and then his motorcycle fell over and stalled.

Police say the man tried pushing the motorcycle while pulling the shopping cart. He finally restarted his bike and drove away, leaving the cart and most of the items behind.

Wichita Falls police say the crook escaped with two power drills.

Police didn’t immediately provide additional details Wednesday.
