GUNMAN GOES BANANAS
Tuesday May 19th, 2009
This is definitely the best yet. As useless as this criminal is I cannot help but admire his resourcefulness. John Szwalla attempted to hold up an internet café armed with a banana. With the potentially lethal musaceae concealed under his tee shirt the teenager said he had a gun and demanded money. His plans to make a fast buck were quickly thwarted when the shop owner and several customers decided to become have-a-go-heroes and overpowered the wanna-be Clyde Barrow before calling the police.
Realising the job was up the persistently resourceful teen ate the ‘weapon’ before the law arrived. However he forgot to dispose of the skin properly and it was photographed as evidence.
Owner of ‘109 Biz Center’ in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Bobby Ray Mabe said of his brush with the deadly yellow fruit, 'If he had had a gun he would've shot me… But he had a banana.'
The 17year-old was charged with attempted armed robbery and may also be charged with destroying evidence.
Oh come on officers. He’d had a busy day on the rob the lad was hungry!
