RCMP believe they have caught their . . . Santa Claus.
You might remember, back on the afternoon of Dec. 24, 2015, a ‘Kris Kringle’ impersonator robbed a jewelry store in downtown Stettler.
Well, the Mounties are accusing Shawn Steier of Medicine Hat, who is 31, of being that ‘right jolly old elf.’
Steier allegedly walked into Ware’s Jewelers dressed as Santa, pulled out a gun, and fled the scene in a black Hummer with a bag full of loot.
He’s due in court in Stettler on the 22nd of September; charged with robbery, possession of a weapon for the purpose of committing an offence, and numerous other offences. (td)
