Man rammed car into petrol station then stole and ate banana before leaving

Police in Newington, Connecticut are asking for the public's help identifying a man who backed his car into a petrol station several times, stole a banana, then fled the scene.

The incident happened shortly before 2am on Wednesday, at the Citgo gas station on Cedar St. When police arrived on the scene they found extensive damage to the doors.

After reviewing surveillance video, officers discovered that the suspect, driving a light-coloured Ford Freestyle station wagon with CT registration plates, backed into the entrance doors several times creating an opening in the glass. Police said the suspect then entered the store. The man wasn't wearing a mask and didn't attempt to hide his identity.

Once inside the store, police said the man picked up a banana from a shelf, peeled and ate it, then walked out. According to police, nothing else was taken during the burglary. The suspect then fled the scene in the station wagon, which sustained damage to the driver side rear bumper and tail light, police said.

I cannot think of a comment that doesn't exploit the racial overtones of this bananakleptic moron, so I will refrain from doing so.
