Police say man crashes car into Conn. gas station and eats stolen banana before fleeing

January 10, 2014 - 2:45 PM

NEWINGTON, Conn. - Call it the case of the banana-eating bandit.

Police in Connecticut say they're looking for a man who smashed his vehicle into a gas station in Newington, swiped a banana from a shelf and ate it before leaving early Wednesday morning. Nothing else was taken.

The store's surveillance video shows a Ford Freestyle with Connecticut license plates backing repeatedly into the store and breaking the glass doors, which set off the burglar alarm at about 2 a.m.

The man was gone before police arrived.

Police say the station wagon has damage to the driver's side taillight and rear bumper.
