Bank Robber Who Resembles Santa Claus Arrested After Throwing Stolen Money Around And Yelling ‘Merry Christmas’

An alleged bank robber in Colorado, who strangely resembles Santa Claus, was arrested after throwing around his stolen money to passers by while shouting out ‘Merry Christmas.’

As Fox News reports:

Witnesses say they saw a man throw money from a bag onto a street in Colorado Springs while yelling “Merry Christmas”, KKTV reported.

The bizarre incident happened moments after a branch of Academy Bank near the intersection of East Pikes Peak Avenue and South Tejon Street was robbed around 12:30 p.m., police said in an incident report.

They described the robber – later identified as 65-year-old David Wayne Oliver – as an “older white male” who threatened to use a weapon and left the bank with an “undisclosed amount of cash.”

Police found the suspect sitting in front of a coffee shop and arrested him without incident.

Bystanders returned the money that Oliver had passed out to them back to the bank after the bizarre Christmas incident.
