Moun­ties in Banff are look­ing for a Christ­mas Grinch who stole a num­ber of purses to go on an il­le­gal shop­ping spree.

Be­tween Dec. 2 and 10, RCMP said a man en­tered busi­nesses and stole wal­lets and purses from ar­eas ac­cessed by the pub­lic, and others re­stricted to em­ploy­ees.

Moun­ties al­lege the man used credit cards from the stolen wal­lets to pur­chase items in both Banff and Can­more. They said the man in­sisted pur­chases by credit card be made in in­cre­ments less than $100 to uti­lize the cards’ tap fea­ture. The man is de­scribed as Cau­casian, 30 to 40 years old and around five-feet-nine-inches tall.
