IF SANTA was a little late arriving on Christmas night, there's a good chance he was locked up at a Sydney police station.

Detectives have been left to wonder whether tough times have hit the North Pole, or a thief just has a good sense of humour after a man in a red and white suit successfully robbed a Liverpool shopping centre.

Dressed in a full Santa outfit, a man entered a store, raided a safe and stashed a large amount of cash in, of all things, a red sack.

Video footage shows the man pushing a trolley carrying the sack out of the centre.

A woolly white beard disguised his face.

Police have appealed for anyone with information to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
