PENNSAUKEN, N.J., Jan. 6 (UPI) -- The driver of a Jeep Grand Cherokee smashed into the front of a Pennsauken, N.J., pizza shop not once, but twice, then fled the scene, the store owner said.

Stephanie Boese, owner of Roman's Pizza, said video surveillance captured the vehicle slamming into the front of the building at about 3:30 a.m. Saturday. The Jeep then backed up and drove into the shop again, and the driver then fled the scene, The (Cherry Hill, N.J.) Courier reported.

"I just can't believe a Jeep did all this damage. It looks like a bulldozer or something came through here," Boese said.

She said Pennsauken police told her they had a suspect in custody, though police gave no further details on the incident.

Boese said she has owned Roman's Pizza for 10 years, though it's "been here for 25 years."

Nearly a dozen friends and neighbors gathered at the building to help Boese clean up and secure equipment until repairs could be made, The Courier reported.
