Rudolph the Red Nosed Burglar

A thief has adopted an unusual disguise in order to get away with a burglary, breaking into a business and stealing several items while wearing a giant plush reindeer head.

The video shows the woman entering a business wearing a backpack and part of the Rudolph costume, shining a torch around the room and gathering several items into various bags.

"Rudolph the Red Nosed Burglar, had a very shady scheme. And if you saw the video, it would want to make you scream"

Police shared a Christmas-themed poem along with the video, and asked members of the public to contact Crime Stoppers if they had any further information that could help identify the thief.

By Christmas Eve, Fort William (USA) authorities had received an overwhelming response to the post but were still looking for the culprit.
