FORT COLLINS, Colo. — The Fort Collins Police Department said a suspect dressed as a reindeer is accused of breaking into a business and stealing several items.

Police said the crime occurred early in the morning on Tuesday on the 300 block of Hickory Street. It’s not clear what was stolen.

Fort Collins police posted surveillance video of the suspect along with a Christmas-themed poem:

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Burglar
Had a very shady scheme
And if you saw the video
It would want to make you scream.

All of the other burglars
Used to steal without disguise
They weren’t like this Rudolph
She’s different from the other guys.

On one foggy December eve
Rudolph came to steal.
Broke into a Hickory shop,
Never expected to see a cop.

Oh how the camera caught her
As she committed burglary
Rudolph the Red Nosed Criminal
We need your help with her I.D.

Police said all kidding aside, they are still searching for the suspect. Anybody with information is encouraged to call Officer Treutler at 970-221-6555 or Larimer County Crime Stoppers at 970-221-6868.
