7 of the Craziest Christmas Crimes

While most families might choose between a pine, spruce or a fir when picking out a Christmas tree, one Chilean mother had something else in mind.

When police raided Angelica Navarro Pereira’s home in Chile on suspicion for drug trafficking, they were shocked to see that she had placed presents under six-and-a-half foot tall marijuana plants, which she was using as a Christmas tree.

A local news station reported that she had boasted to her 55-year-old neighbor that “her children were really going to enjoy Christmas this year, and that she had the best tree in the world.”

Pereira was arrested and was sentenced to 70 days in jail for possession of 21 five-foot cannabis plants, and 29 bags of hash, the Daily Mirror reports.
