Santa Claus may be having an identity crisis.

A man dressed in Kris Kringle's trademark snowy beard and red stocking cap robbed a SunTrust Banks (STI) branch in Port Orange, Fla., on Monday, according to multiple news reports. Carrying a box covered in Christmas-themed wrapping paper, the suspect passed a teller a note implying that the package was dangerous and demanding money, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal.

The man fled the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash, leaving the package behind. A bomb squad later determined that the box did not contain an explosive device.

The suspect remained at large as of Tuesday morning.
