HOUSTON -- Someone used a van to smash a hole in the side of a Fifth Ward Radio Shack early Wednesday, police said.

The break-in was reported just before 4 a.m. in the 5800 block of Lyons.

Surveillance video captured a custom van backing into the store. It wasn't immediately clear how many suspects were involved or if they got away with anything.

When officers arrived they found a lot of damage and merchandise scattered within the store.
