Santa Makes The Naughty List

A man is being hunted by police after he robbed an Australian post office while dressed as Santa Claus.

The white bearded man entered the store in a suburb of Melbourne on Saturday and demanded money from a member of staff.

The woman handed over cash which the man put into a red Santa sack.

Footage from in-store cameras shows the man jumped up on to the counter to scoop up more cash himself.

The offender then got away in a cream coloured Jeep which had false number plates on it.

No weapon was seen during the incident and no one was injured.

I don’t think this Santa will make the nice list this year!
