In a crime that has local authorities thoroughly confused, a man backed his SUV into a gas station, stole a banana, ate it and departed in the vehicle. All that for a banana?
Police in Newington, Conn. say the alarm at a Citgo sounded around 1:48 a.m. this morning. They arrived to find serious damage to the doors, and after reviewing surveillance footage, saw a man back his Ford Freestyle into the door several times to shatter the glass.
After achieving his goal, the man entered the store and removed a banana from one of the shelves. He proceeded to peel and eat it, then casually exited. Not at any point did he try to conceal his face, or attempt to steal anything else.
Perhaps it was a dare, or he just really needed a 2 a.m. potassium fix.
