Jan. 10, 2014 at 3:22 PM

NEWINGTON, Conn., Jan. 10 (UPI) -- Authorities in Connecticut said they are searching for a man who crashed a station wagon into a convenience store and stole a single banana.

Police said surveillance video of the 1:45 a.m. Wednesday incident shows a man repeatedly backing a station wagon into the glass doors of the Citgo Gas Station in Newington until the glass broke, the Hartford (Conn.) Courant reported Friday.

Sgt. Christopher Perry said the man then got out of the car, took a banana from a shelf, peeled it and ate it.

"He didn't appear to be in any rush," Perry said.

The man then drove away in the light-colored Ford Freestyle without stealing any other items.

Police are investigating the incident and are asking anyone with information about the break-in to contact investigators.
