Man Dressed as Santa Claus Busted for Carrying Ecstasy, Molly and Marijuana: Cops
A Florida man dressed as Santa Claus was arrested this week after cops say they caught him selling drugs.
Cops say 41-year-old Isaac Geiger was seen standing at the driver’s door of a U-Haul rental truck in the parking lot of a business Monday when suspicious bystanders called police.
"Geiger was very distinguishable in the parking lot because he was wearing a red and white Santa Claus outfit, complete with hat and white beard," the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said in a release.
Cops say Geiger fled when he saw them, at which point they state that a "large amount of marijuana" was found on the driver's seat of the U-Haul.
Police gave chase and soon caught up with Geiger when he tripped over his Santa pants while running and fell to the ground, the release said.
As he was being restrained, police say they found a plastic baggie in Geiger's shorts pocket under the Santa suit along, with a sum of cash.
While searching the U-Haul, cops said they found a scale with marijuana residue, and a black pouch containing MDMA on the front driver seat (in plain view).
Inside a five-gallon bucket was additional marijuana, a yellow substance cops say contained THC, more MDMA, Ecstasy pills, and money, according to the release.
Geiger was arrested and charged with possession of meth with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana, resisting arrest and other drug related charges.
Geiger remains held in lieu of $75,000 bond. He's due in court January 11.
