BELLEFONTAINE NEIGHBORS, MO (KTVI) - Police in Bellefontaine Neighbors are looking for a white, Dodge Ram 4-door they believe was the getaway vehicle after and early morning smash-and-grab.

Just before 5 a.m. Wednesday, officers  rushed to a Conoco gas station on Chambers Road and Bellefontaine Road.

They found a blue Dodge 4x4 pickup in front of the convenience store.  The front door was smashed in.  There was glass covering the hood.  When a tow operator tried to take the vehicle from the scene, police realized why the suspects may have left it behind.  While there was almost no body damage, the truck could not drive in reverse.

The gas station was closed at the time, and there were no employees inside.  However, managers and employees cleaned the store up in time to serve customers for the morning rush hour.
