Police: Man smashed car into gas station, stole banana

NEWINGTON, Conn. (AP) -- 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.
