World renowned gift giver Santa Claus has been charged after a staggering 1.2 tonnes of methamphetamine was intercepted in Western Australia. It is the biggest seizure of meth in Australian history.
Police allege the drugs, with a street value of $1.04 billion, were carried by boat to the port of Geraldton before being offloaded on Santa’s sleigh early on Thursday morning. Tactical response police officers then intercepted the sleigh as Santa reversed back from the dock.
Police believe the drugs originated in the North Pole, with the shipment picked up from a “mother sleigh” off the WA coast to transport to the mainland.
“It was only three weeks ago Santa was accused of indecent assault and bullying of women,” a police spokeswoman told reporters this afternoon.
“Now he is facing charges of importing commercial quantities of border-controlled drugs.”
If convicted of the offenses, Santa could face the maximum penalty of life imprisonment.
Meanwhile, an Australian customs official has told the media that they will be carefully inspecting every present imported from Santa Clause Corp for drugs.
More to come.
