Santa’s got a brand new sleigh!
Brazilian police are on the hunt for a man dressed as Santa Claus after he stole a helicopter — yeah, you read that right!
The jolly old thief rented a helicopter on Friday from a service at the Campo de Marte Airport airport in S├â┬úo Paulo for what the S├â┬úo Paulo state police say was supposed to be a Black Friday “surprise.”
However, things went from nice to naughty very quickly as Old St. Nick forced the pilot to fly to a farm outside of the city where he Santa and a waiting accomplice tied him up and flew away!
Luckily after only a few hours, the pilot managed to break free and contact the police.
Police say there has been no sign of the helicopter since.
We don’t know how this ridiculous crime will play out, but we’re willing to bet the Santa thief can expect coal in his stocking this year!
