Authorities in Newington, Conn. say a man repeatedly crashed his car into a gas station early Wednesday morning as a means to break into the convenience store — only to walk in, steal a banana and then flee the scene.

“Review of surveillance video depicted a suspect, operating a light colored Ford Freestyle station wagon with Connecticut registration plates, back into the store entrance door several times creating an opening in the glass,” Newington police said in a Facebook post.

“The suspect selected a banana from a shelf, peeled and ate the fruit, and then exited the store.”
