KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Christmas has come and gone, but police in Kansas City, Kan., are looking for a greedy Grinch who stole a popular Santa's "sleigh" of sorts. Fox 4's Robert Townsend talked to the unsuspecting victim in his famous, red and white suit on Tuesday at his home near Lathrop and 43rd.
"Who would steal from Santa? I don't know, but I'm gonna put them on the naughty list, permanently,” said a teary-eyed Dennis "Santa Claus" Blankenship.
Santa says late Friday or early Saturday he and Mrs. Claus, sound asleep when the thief or thieves stole his white, 2002 Dodge pickup from his drive-way, hit his wife's parked car and then got away with his vehicle and the tons of toys inside.
"I am on a fixed income and I can't afford to buy a new one right now," said a disappointed Dennis with tears in his eyes.
