A Patchogue man in a stolen SUV crashed into a Patchogue store Tuesday after police tried unsuccessfully to pull him over, Suffolk County police said.

Michael Nash, of 45 Whippoorwill Lane, crashed the 2008 Honda into Avenue Sound, an audio system business at 260 E. Main St., and "was fully into the building," police said.

An officer saw Nash jump into the Honda while its owner was getting an oil change and drive away, police said. Nash was treated and released at Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center in East Patchogue, police said.

Nash was charged with third-degree grand larceny, third-degree attempted grand larceny, third-degree unlawfully fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle and second-degree reckless endangerment.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Central Islip on April 9.
