Peruvian police officers dress as Santa, elf for undercover drug bust

Dressed as Santa Claus and one of his little elf helpers, police officers in Peru went undercover for a holiday drug bust in Lima. 

A video of the operation was uploaded to Facebook by the Policía Nacional del Perú which showed one off the officers in festive garb busting open a door of alleged criminals with a massive sledgehammer while his partner followed close behind. 

The officer dressed as Santa, with the help of his partner who donned a green elf costume, tackled a man to the ground before putting him in handcuffs. 

"Santa Claus intervenes at the address of a drug micro-marketer," wrote the Policía Nacional on the post. 

In the video, police appeared to confiscate guns and other contraband.
