    Deputies: Banana used as gun in holdup, then eaten

    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Authorities in North Carolina say a store owner and a patron thwarted a teen accused of trying to carry out a robbery by concealing a banana beneath his shirt to resemble a gun.

    Winston-Salem authorities say 17-year-old John Szwalla entered the Internet cafe Thursday and demanded money, saying he had a gun.

    The owner, Bobby Ray Mabe, said he and a customer jumped Szwalla, holding him until deputies arrived. While they waited, Mabe says the teen ate the banana......

    Internet cafe? Yeah because that would have a lot of money in it.
    I won't even call him an idiot for trying to rob a place with a banana because the moron tried to rob an internet cafe.

    Well, at least he concealed the evidence?
