What do you want for this Christmas this year? A phone call? Apparently that’s the new trend as beat cops are embracing the holiday spirit and going undercover as Sinterklass.
In one amazing video, we get to watch Die Hard meeting Kris Kringle as the Nakatomi Tower is replaced by the barrios of Lima. As Louder with Crowder wrote, “I never knew I wanted to see St. Nick bust open a door with a sledgehammer before.” Isn’t that the truth.
Now that I’ve finally seen it, I can’t believe I made it this long. There is something immensely satisfying about watching Santa and his team of elves take down narcotraficantes as they crash through a locked door with a gigantic hammer.
Just take a look as this nimble, fleet-of-foot Christmas staple barges through what looks like a Peruvian Skid Row and gets the bad guy:

Louder with Crowder hilariously noted that while Santa works just one day a year, he obviously needs to fill the remaining 364 with something productive. Delivering toys satisfies the needs of children; now how can he help society? Bust drug rings, obviously. Louder with Crowder wrote:
The rest of the year, Santa’s got his ear to the streets. He’s cutting deals with sources and working over snitches. Finally getting that one big drug bust he’s been working so hard for. That day finally came for one Peruvian Santa.
Now, full disclosure, and as many people are probably already suspecting, this isn’t really Santa. You can never be too careful with the fact checkers. This is the police disguised as Santa, which is something that keeps recurring in crime fighting. In late December of 2020, another epic Santa video was shared in which he takes on some other perps. I suppose you can’t make Santa arrests in July; something about t
Take a look as this American Santa has more than just a Nerf gun in his toy sack:

As the local NBC affiliate wrote, this Santa was working undercover too.
Det. Paul Miranda was one of several Riverside police officers working undercover Thursday at Target in the Canyon Springs Shopping Center.
“We worked inside the store, identified shoplifters and when they split the scene, Santa was there to take them into custody,” Miranda said.
Santa is a detective and his trusty sidekick elf, an officer. Both jumped into action when Miranda spotted a car being stolen from the parking lot as two other men ran from the scene.
Again, Louder with Crowder was on the case. Writing with their typical humorous slant, the site added to the story by providing a little extra commentary to the already-fantastic video.
The real hero in this story is the guy yelling “Get ’em, Santa” from behind his trusty smartphone. Had it not been for him, we’d have no idea this story took place. Be honest, seeing Santa blockbuster suplex a perp put a smile on your face. Find the joy in the little things this Chrstmas season!
If this is going to be a growing trend, apparently every bell ringer and mall Santa has to be considered to be packing heat and carrying a badge. I hope my toddler has been good this year, otherwise he might be getting his Christmas Eve visit from the real Santa while sleeping on a metal cot in the slammer.
