Case 135

The Santa Claus Bank Robbery

On December 23 1927, the streets of Cisco, Texas were full of festive cheer as residents prepared for Christmas. When a man dressed as Santa Clause entered the First National Bank of Cisco, customers chuckled that even Saint Nick had finances to attend to during the holiday season. 

But when Santa and his accomplices pulled pistols out from beneath their coats, it was immediately clear that they weren’t there to spread the Christmas spirit.
