This article reports that Christmas came a little too early at a San Bruno, California-based 7-Eleven Inc., when in mid-November a robber in a Santa wig allegedly demanded money instead of handing out gifts. The San Bruno Police Department reported a heavyset man entered the 7-Eleven, announced he was robbing the store and walked around the counter to the cash register, acting as if he were armed. After taking money from the register, the suspect, who wore an orange and black San Francisco Giants jacket, a white Santa wig and a bandanna covering his nose and mouth, fled — on foot, not in a sleigh.
