​Man Robs Bank Dressed as Santa During SF Santacon

So I'm glad to say that our 4th annual Fresno Santacon didn't have this happen. This guy is part jerk (only jerks rob banks) and part genius for his way to blend into the crowd.

Here's the full story:

Man Dressed As St. Nick Robs Downtown San Francisco Bank During SantaCon

He knows if you've been bad or good, and he apparently also knows when your guard is down.
This last Saturday, some Scrooge dressed as Santa—much like most the rest of the city during the SantaCon street party —tiptoed right into a Wells Fargo bank on Sutter Street downtown, and robbed it.
The real life Man With The Bag approached the teller window in the early afternoon with a demand note in hand, and then gracefully walked away.

The sneaky St. Nick was described only as a man in his 40s or 50s standing about 5-feet, 11-inches tall. KPIX 5's Joe Vazquez was the first to track down FBI photos revealing that he was wearing an ill-fitting beard.

He slipped into the SantaCon crowed filled with hundreds of merry-makers who were drinking and partying in the streets around Union Square.

"The suspect decided to take advantage of this event dressed as a Santa," said SFPD spokeswoman Grace Gatpandan.

Similar crimes have been depicted by Hollywood, and naughty Santas have been caught on camera carrying out crimes from Florida to Australia. However, the crowd of Santas in the streets on Saturday give this criminal an added layer of anonymity.

FBI Special Agent Brian Weber told KPIX 5 the agency is investigating the matter jointly with the San Francisco Police Department. Weber said anyone with information about the identity or whereabouts of the suspect should contact their nearest FBI office or dial 911.
