Christmas might be the season for giving, but this bad Santa showed it was one for the taking after he stole a $150,000 sports car.
The man was dressed in a Santa hat, red jacket and white pants as he strolled into a carpark at an apartment complex on Defries Avenue in Zetland, a suburb in inner-east Sydney. CCTV captured the imposter entering the undergound car park just before midnight on December 8. Moments later, he drove a bright green 2009 Mercedes C63 sedan out of the carpark. Police say the man in the faux Santa outfit is of Mediterranean or Middle Eastern appearance, of a slight build and in his 30s.
Redfern Police Area Commander superintendent Andrew Holland said investigators wanted to speak with the man. Stealing is unacceptable, and our investigators will continue to pursue all leads to crack this case,’ supt Holland said.
As part of our investigation, we are calling on the community and, in particular, the man in the vision to come forward and assist us with our inquiries into this brazen motor vehicle theft.
