Santa Claus arrests – level 1

22-12-2016 07:00

Santa Claus visits people at Christmas. Sometimes he gives naughty children coal. This time nobody gets coal.

A man from an anti-drug unit goes to a house. He looks like Santa Claus. He has a big belly and a comical mask.

There are drug dealers in the house. Santa Claus arrests four of them. The policemen find 4564 small cocaine packages. They take the packages from the dealers.

All of this happens in Peru. It is now one of the biggest cocaine producers in the world.

Difficult words:  naughty (bad), coal (a black stone used for heating), arrest (put into prison).
