NEWINGTON — Police are looking a driver who they said broke into a convenience store by ramming it with a station wagon and stole a banana.
The break-in happened at the Citgo Gas Station, 502 Cedar St., about 1:45 a.m. Wednesday when the store was closed. Officers responding to a burglary alarm found "extensive damage to the north entry doors," police said in a news release.
When they looked at the surveillance video, they saw that a man repeatedly backed a station wagon into the building, breaking through the glass, police said.
First, Sgt. Christopher J. Perry said, the driver lightly tapped the plate glass. Then, he backed up more quickly, he said. The third time, he flew backwards with force, shattering the glass.
The driver got out, plucked a banana off a shelf, peeled it and ate it, they said. A surveillance camera captured images of him chewing.
"He didn't appear to be in any rush," Perry said.
He then left the store without taking anything else.
The station wagon is described as a light-colored Ford Freestyle with Connecticut plates. It has damage to its driver-side rear bumper and tail light, police said.
The man was wearing a dark jacket, dark pants and a brown hat.
