A man has been arrested accused of robbing two banks using an avocado.
The 47-year-old allegedly robbed two banks in Beershaba, Israel, in the past month using a piece of fruit, The Times of Israel reports.
According to 112 News, he handed a cashier at one of the banks a note asking her to hand over cash. He then threatened her with a ‘grenade’.
The grenade was actually a piece of fruit he had painted black.
It’s alleged he performed the same act at another bank a few days later.
He’s accused of stealing more than A$12,000 in total, but was arrested after police tracked him down using his phone.
