Police asking for help to ID burglar disguised as Rudolph

The Fort Collins Police Department said a woman broke into a business in the 300 block of Hickory Street on Dec. 18. The woman was wearing a plush Rudolph costume head.

Rudolph is usually known for his role leading Santa's sleigh with his bright-colored nose.

But a suspect in Fort Collins is tarnishing the reindeer's good name.

Fort Collins police are asking for help identifying a woman who broke into a business in the 300 block of Hickory Street in the early morning hours of Dec. 18. The woman was disguised as a reindeer.

Fort Collins Police on Sunday posted a poem on its Facebook page about the incident, along with a video:

"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 ask that anyone with information about the incident or the suspect's identity call 970-221-6555 or the Larimer County Crime Stoppers at 970-221-6868.
