MEMPHIS, Dec. 23 (UPI) -- Tennessee police released surveillance video of a naughty Santa acting nice by handing out candy canes at the bank he robbed only moments later.

The Memphis Police Department said in a Facebook post the man, clad in a burgundy sweater and a Santa Claus mask covering his face, walked into the Memphis City Employee Credit Union about 10 a.m. Wednesday and handed out candy canes to customers and employees while wishing them a "Merry Christmas."

The Santa then approached a teller and handed her a note demanding the cash from her drawer.

The surveillance video shows Santa, having successfully obtained the money, removing his mask outside the bank, but his back is to the camera.
