According to witnesses, the man entered the Memphis City Employee Credit Union on Wednesday. The man started handing out candy canes to customers, wishing them a Merry Christmas.  He then approached the counter and handed the teller a note demanding money.

After grabbing the cash, the faux Santa left the bank. Police are still searching for him. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
