KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Santa’s sleigh isn’t supposed to go on any rides in August.

Merriam, Kansas Police say they are looking for a suspect that took off Tuesday morning with a trailer in the 5600 block of Merriam Drive.

Inside the trailer was a sleigh used by a local businessman who rides the sleigh at each year’s Merriam tree-lighting ceremony.
