NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — He may have been dressed all in fur from his head to his foot, but this Santa was no saint.
According to Metropolitan Nashville Police, around 10:00 a.m. Tuesday, a man dressed in a full Santa Claus costume complete with a hat, beard and sack over his shoulder, entered the Sun Trust Bank branch located at 4809 Old Hickory Boulevard in Hermitage and approached a teller.
According to witnesses, Santa was wearing sunglasses and the teller asked him to remove them.
The suspect refused, reached into his sack and pulled out a gun. He demanded money and told tellers if they put dye bombs with the money he’d come back “kill everyone.”
He took the money and fled, telling employees and customers in the bank he needed the money because “Santa needed to pay his elves.”
After the teller complied, the man fled in a gray midsize car.
The suspect is a white man with brown hair who is approximately six feet tall.
