The suspect vehicle, which was operated by a female at the time, backed up into the building and then exited the vehicle and went out of camera sight.
Shortly thereafter a male is seen entering the vehicle as the driver and both parties drive off in the same vehicle. It appears as if they were having an argument which may have been a contributing circumstance.
