Santa Claus Robs Safe In Australian Mall! Go Santa! Go Santa!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Santa Claus, or at least someone wearing a Santa suit, walked off with the contents of a safe in an Australian shopping center, police said.

Investigators have released images captured by security cameras. What they show is someone with almost all facial features hidden by a voluminous false white beard and suited from head to toe as Santa, including white gloves."


This is a brilliant caper, and in the generous spirit of Christmas I hope this Santa will never be caught.

A smart thief will seek to blend in with the crowd, so that he can elude the authorities. At this time of the year there are Santas everywhere, the cops will be overwhelmed questioning every Santa in Sydney.

This cool Santa was wearing white gloves, just like every Santa worth his salt -- he didn`t leave behind any incriminating fingerprints.

Santa`s huge fake white beard covered almost all of his face, rendering the images from the security cameras useless.

Santa had a cane, not a candy cane, but a real cane for beating the hell out of cops who got in his way.

Nice Going Santa, have a Merry Christmas!
