VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WVEC) -- Virginia Beach police were on the lookout for a suspicious old man on Sunday.
He's known for sneaking into houses through chimneys, and he's pretty recognizable.
"Suspect: Santa Claus, white male, ageless, 6 foot, over 400 pounds, white hair, twinkling eyes," came the description over the Virginia Beach Police scanner on Christmas Eve. "He should have a sleighful of packages in the back of his sleigh."
He wasn't just spotted on the Southside, either. Hampton Police caught our suspect, who goes by the alias Kris Kringle, on surveillance video:
