He may have been dressed all in fur from his head to his foot, but this Santa was no saint.

According to Metropolitan Nashville Police, a man wearing a Santa Claus suit -- including hat, beard and mustache -- and dark sunglasses robbed a SunTrust Bank on Tuesday morning, demanding money from the teller at gunpoint.
