An alleged shoplifter fled a Dollar Tree in Fort Worth, Texas, after her boyfriend drove a van through the front door last week, Fox 4 reported.

The wild ordeal unfolded on Thursday, after employees confronted three suspects, two women and one man, for trying to steal candy and other goods from the store, police said. The workers detained one of the women and her boyfriend reportedly flipped out.

“Let her go! If you don’t let her go, I’ll come in and get her,” he said before getting in his van and crashing it through the front door of the store, witnesses told police.

The girlfriend then jumped into the car and couple fled the scene, police said.

Police said the third accomplice was arrested at the scene but there were no recent reports of any other arrests made in the getaway. A spokesperson from the Fort Worth Police Department was not immediately available for comment.

The woman arrested, who was not identified, was taken to a hospital because she appeared to be under the influence of alcohol or drug, authorities said.

Employees of the Dollar Tree told Fox 4 the car crashing into the store sounded like an explosion.

“We didn’t think he was coming in with a car,” a worker said. “We just thought he was coming back in there to get her, but he fooled us. He came in there with a van.”

No one was injured.

The store closed on Thursday following the incident. It re-opened two days ago, an employee told The Post over the phone.
