A man smashed his vehicle into a gas station all for a banana, according to police reports in Connecticut.

Newington Police said that a local hungry criminal crashed his car through the front doors of a service station just to steal a banana.

The man repeatedly backed his Ford Freestyle SUV into the gates of a Citgo station, before breaking the glass and taking a banana from a shelf.

He stood in front of surveillance cameras, making no effort to hide his face, and began peeling and eating the stolen banana.

The station’s alarm went off, but by the time police arrived the suspect was nowhere to be found.

The suspect was identified as a black man, wearing a dark jacket, dark pants and a brown hat.

No other items were taken during the robbery.
