The store owner was upset because he had nothing to do with the Ferguson riots.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported:

Board of Aldermen President Lewis Reed’s campaign SUV was stolen early Wednesday morning and used to crash into a cellphone store on South Grand Boulevard.

Reed said his campaign’s Dodge Durango was stolen from his house a few blocks from Russell and South Grand boulevards, where Ferguson protesters have demonstrated on recent nights in the city.

Reed said he wasn’t sure if the theft was connected to the nearby unrest or completely unrelated.

“I don’t know if this was separate from that, or if this was an opportunity for criminals to seize because they think police are busy with something else,” Reed said. “I think we will see more of it.”
