Teen Robs Shop With Banana, then Eats evidence!

A North Carolina teen was foiled as he attempted to rob an internet cafe with a banana but ate it before cops arrived. Seventeen year old John Szwalla entered a Winston-Salem store with a banana in his hoodie, claiming it was a gun and demanding all of the money in the register and safe.
A quick thinking customer and store owner Bobby Ray Mabe tackled the would-be stickup artist and kept him pinned to the ground until police arrived. While they waited, Szwalla ate his "weapon!"
Major Brad Stanley, spokesman for the Forsyth County Sheriff stated the officers took photos of the banana peel and joked about the possibility of charging the teen with destroying evidence in addition to his pending charge of attempted "armed" robbery.
