Nasty Santa – with thanks to Jiglenn

Police have busted a gun-toting Father Christmas who tried to rob a car in Spain’s Granada province.

According to Ideal, the ill-fated robbery took place on New Year’s Day in the small town of Íllora. The car’s owner had just bought churros and was heading back to his vehicle when he was attacked by the dodgy Papá Noel.

Armed with a pistol, the crook tried to claim the car but the vehicle’s rightful owner wasn’t having a bar of it. After a brief struggle, the 44-year-old crook took fright and fled. He was picked up Guardia Civil officers shortly afterwards.
