NEW DETAILS: CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A violent smash and grab on Cleveland's Westside Friday morning

19 Action News has learned a motorist plowed into a Westside store, grabbed the business's cash register, money from the ATM machine, alcohol and some cigarettes.

It happened at the Star Value store on Bellaire just before 7:30AM.

The thug then revved up his pick-up truck and fled the scene.

The suspect's truck was spotted a short time later in the area of E. 65th & Denison by an officer who attempted to stop him from fleeing further. 

The suspect stopped his truck and made a run for it down a hill into Brookside Park at W. 46th & Denison. 

But he's not fast enough - a second officer on patrol in the area nabbed the thug while he's running in Brookside Park. 

Police tell 19 Action News the vehicle the suspect used in the crime was stolen from a resident on Tate Avenue Thursday night.
