Fort Collins Police in Colorado has released a video on its Facebook page, wherein a woman can be seen wearing a big Rudolph mask to conceal her identity during the burglary. Dubbed ‘Rudolph the Red Nosed Burglar’ by Fort Collins Police, she has now gone viral on the internet for her bizarre disguise on Christmas day.
CCTV footage shared by the police shows the woman entering a room wearing a large furry Rudolph head. She is then seen putting things kept outside the room inside a bag. At one point, she removes her Rudolph mask and looks directly into the security camera. While sharing the video, Fort Collins Police wrote, "In the early morning hours of December 18, someone actually broke into a business in the 300 block of Hickory Street and stole several items...while attempting to disguise herself as one of Santa's helpers. If you have any info about this incident or know suspect's identity, let us know so we can notify St. Nick.’’
