6. Petty Larceny
This past November, Santa impostor John Anthony Hunter attempted to rip off locals while posting in front of a Charlotte grocery store. Wearing a shotty Santa hat and claiming to be a rep from Toys for Tots, the program that collects playthings for kids around the holidays, Hunter stood outside attempting to solicit money from passersby. While reports indicate that Hunter potentially could've made it out of there without getting apprehended, his last-minute, crackhead-esque urge to try and make off with one of the store's shopping carts ended up getting the best of him.
