KINGMAN - The Mohave County Sheriff's Office is seeking public assistance in solving a criminal damage case.

About 3:16 p.m. Sunday, deputies responded to an accident in which a vehicle crashed into the Chaparral Restaurant at 1455 Northern Avenue, spokeswoman Trish Carter said.

Witnesses stated a parked, unoccupied white truck rolled out of the Gas N' Grub parking lot across North Sierra Road and smashed into the restaurant. The business was closed at the time and there were no injuries.

Witnesses also reported observing a white male subject wearing a blue baseball cap run to the truck, get in and start the engine. He backed out of the building and drove away headed north on Sierra Road.

The truck is described as a Ford extended cab, possibly with a diesel engine. It had extensive damage to its front end.
