Alaska man quickly caught in slow escape on store’s motorized cart

FAIRBANKS, Alaska — Police captured a man attempting to steal a motorized cart from a grocery store after a chase that reached speeds of up to nearly 2 mph.

Not really too dramatic.

Still, Rondell Tony Chinuhuk, 32, of Anchorage, Alaska, is charged with felony theft after trying to make off with the $2,500 cart from a Safeway, the Daily News-Miner reports.

After Chinuhuk was spotted driving the cart across a street, he initially told police he was taking it back to the store. The motorized cart has a seat with a shopping basket mounted on the front.

Reports say the cart has a top speed of 1.9 mph.

After further questioning, Chinuhuk reportedly told police he was driving away from the store.

There are no reports on why Chinuhuk allegedly was trying to take the cart.
