After a man robbed a New Mexico liquor store by ramming a truck through the front door, police were on the look out for the suspect.

On Sunday, police in Albuquerque arrested Sam Muller for crashing into and robbing a local liquor store.

Video footage of the April 6 incident allegedly shows the 21-year-old crashing a truck through the front door of Freeway Liquors, backing up, and driving away. Two hours later, he allegedly made his way into the store through the hole left by the truck. He got away with pocketfuls and even a bucket of cigarettes. Muller also took a roll of lottery tickets from the store and a laptop belonging to one the store’s employees.

Muller was taken into custody after someone heard him bragging about the burglary.

He reportedly told police he did it because he was hungry, but after police pointed out he did not actually steal any food, Muller told authorities he forgot to grab some.

He has been charged with commercial burglary and larceny.
