You better watch out — Santa’s robbing this bank.
A Missouri man with a white beard and Santa hat was arrested for robbing a credit union and threatening to blow up the building, authorities say.
Kenneth Hopper, 58, stole $1,000 from the First Community Credit Union in Bridgeton and threatened to unleash an explosion there before being busted with the cash by St. Ann police, according to court documents obtained by St. Louis Today.
He was charged with first-degree robbery and making terroristic threats, said a spokesman for the St. Louis County Prosecutor’s office. Hopper was being held on a $100,000 bond.
Officials said he was taken to the hospital following his arrest after experiencing chest pains.
