A man dressed in an elf costume has stolen the spirit of Christmas.
Literally, that is.
Melbourne police are investigating after the suspect stole Christmas spirits from a Flemington liquor store on December 8.
He entered the business on Racecourse Road just after 11:30am and made off with the goods.
He was wearing a Christmas elf themed printed t-shirt, with red pants, a light blue zip-up jacket, white sneakers, and a cream fedora.
