Drug dealers in Peru may never look at Santa Claus in the same way again, after police dressed as Father Christmas raided their home and arrested them for possession of cocaine, ruining their chances of a White Christmas.

All of the four men arrested were related, according to local media reports.

The arrested people are all allegedly part of the Pinto drug clan and were using their homes in the Comas district as a centre of gangs and criminals. Take a look at the weird video below to see Santa in action and taking down some bad dudes. I'm sure that will go over well with those guys. "I told you. You are evil".

The officer in charge told Reuters the Santa Claus costumes were employed to help boost the raid team's element of surprise.

It's the most awkward time of the year!

Video footage showed how the disguised police officers, from an undercover police group, took weapons out of their Christmas sack before raiding the property where the alleged criminals were hiding.

The four suspects were placed at the disposal of the Joint Provincial Prosecutor of Condevilla in Comas.

Peru is virtually tied with Colombia as the world's top cocaine producer.
