LATROBE, Pa. (AP) Santa can mark himself down as "naughty."
A bearded man in a red, fur-lined Santa suit and hat showed a handgun and demanded money from a bank teller Monday, police said. He made off with an undetermined amount of cash, police said.

"I'm sure he was a little more menacing than your average Santa at the mall," said state police Trooper Steve Barto.

The man fled just after noon carrying a red bag in which he had stuffed the cash, police said. Police said the getaway vehicle was a tan car not a sleigh.

Ok, I know I shouldn't glorify bank robbery, but I think it's cool that he had a sense of humor and wore a Santa Suit. But in a way, he would also be easier to spot!:santa:
