Montgomery County Sheriff's Office detectives are looking for at least one person who Tuesday morning drove a stolen day care van into the new Costco Wholesale store in The Woodlands.

The store, located at the intersection of Interstate 45 and Texas 242, has been open for only two months and now has roughly $5,000 in damages to its two steel rolling doors.

Fortunately for Costco, there was merchandise stacked near the doors rammed into by the driver of the stolen day care van.

"They had piles of merchandise behind the doors, which actually ended up block the doors from caving in," MCSO Lt. Brady Fitzgerald said.
