Christmas ended early in the town of Jacksonville, Florida, when uniformed and undercover police reportedly swarmed a man wearing a red suit and hat festooned with white trim, pompom and beard.
According to an unidentified eyewitness and Florida CBS affiliate WKMG, a 41-year-old man named Isaac Geiger was innocently spreading holiday cheer from the back of a U-Haul truck in a gas station parking lot.
From the CBS News Crimesider:
“Police said they chased Geiger, who tripped over his Santa pants and fell to the ground.”
“After a struggle, police said they found a plastic baggie under the Santa suit and cash in Geiger’s pocket. A search of the U-Haul revealed marijuana, a scale with marijuana residue and a black pouch containing MDMA—commonly known as ecstasy—on the front driver’s seat, police said.”
“There was also a 5-gallon orange bucket with a white lid on the driver’s side floorboard. Inside the bucket was additional marijuana, molly, ecstasy pills and money, police said.”
