Santa Claus arrests – level 3

22-12-2016 07:00

The police made an arrest in Peru. One of them looked like Santa dealing with who has been naughty or nice this year, but instead of getting a lump of coal, people were arrested.

A man from undercover anti-drug units was dressed as Father Christmas when the police made a raid into a suspected drug house in Peru. The officer was in a full Santa Claus costume, including a stuffed belly and a comical mask. Police arrested at least four alleged drug traffickers and seized 4564 cocaine paste wrappings from three houses.

Peru is tied with Columbia as one of the world’s top cocaine producers. This was one way to deal with the problem.

Difficult words: lump (a piece of something), raid (a quick surprise attack), alleged (supposed), trafficker (a dealer), seize (officially take).
