Just days before Christmas a man took advantage of the Holiday spirit and used a Santa Clause costume to rob a bank.

An unidentified man entered a Tennessee bank Tuesday morning dressed in a full Santa Clause costume complete with a hat, beard and sack over his shoulder.

The man was also wearing sunglasses and when a teller asked him to remove them he refused.

The fake Kris Kringle then reached into his sack and pulled out a gun demanding money.

After taking the money, he made sure to mention that it was for a good cause saying,

“Santa needed to pay his elves.”

Police are on the look for the man who is a six-foot tall White man with brown hair. Check the Associated Press video below.
