The Banana Bandit

According to eyewitnesses, 17-year old John Szwalla entered a North Carolina Internet cafe with a banana under his T-shirt and demanded money. The owner and several customers overtook the boy, but police say he ate the evidence before they arrived. Though they joked about charging him with destruction of evidence, they did take pictures of the banana peel.

However silly it may sound, Szwalla was charged with attempted armed robbery and the cafe owner said, "If he had had a gun, he would've shot me."
