BANGOR, Maine (AP) — The police in Bangor, Maine, say they’ve gotten a complaint about a department store “bad Santa” who apparently wasn’t working there.
Police posted on Facebook on Thursday that a woman walking around the store with her daughter recently was approached by a man dressed as Santa, who handed out a candy cane.
A short time later, they ran into him again and he said, “Good girls get candy, naughty girls get jewelry.”
The woman complained to a store manager, but was told they didn’t have a Santa on the payroll or in the store. They looked around and couldn’t find him.
Police are advising him to do the right thing: “Put yourself on the naughty list and stop by to speak to us.”
