Burglar breaks into restaurant, eats nearly a dozen bananas and falls asleep

This New York bandit seriously went bananas.

After a thief broke into Long Island restaurant "Sexy Salad" at about 1:45 a.m. Saturday morning, he was caught on surveillance footage helping himself to nearly a dozen bananas.

The man then proceeded to urinate in a garbage can before falling asleep on the floor, according to a statement released by the Suffolk County Police Department.

Although he was gone by the time the restaurant opened the following morning, cops had no problem tracking him down. He had also apparently left his New York State driver's license and a watch at the scene.

"If you're gonna be broken into, you might as well get a good laugh out of it," restaurant owner John Robertson told WABC. "This guy was hysterical. I've never seen somebody so drunk."

Cops said the burglar has since made restitution to the business owner, who will not press any charges against him.
