Armed Man Crawls Through Drive-Thru Window To Rob Fast-Food Place (w/VIDEO)

Imagine if Santa Claus was armed and wearing a bandanna across his face. Not a very Merry Christmas, to be sure, but Kris Kringle was apparently the inspiration for one robber.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office and Crime Stoppers have released surveillance video of the robbery, which features the dude halfway through the window, waving his pistol around while he struggles to get free.

It happened last month at a fast-food restaurant in the 11200 block of the Eastex Freeway.

Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect is asked to contact Crime Stoppers of Houston at (713) 222-TIPS (8477).
