A couple of undercover police officers dressed as Santa and an Elf took down a few thieves in California.

The thieves allegedly stole items from a Target store, but they didn't get very far thanks to Santa and his Elf.

One officer, who is dressed as the Elf, holds one of the thieves at gunpoint, while Santa takes down the other. Imagine having to explain this to a few others in jail. "Yeah man, Santa tackled me when I left the store."

I think it goes without saying that these are guys have fallen onto the naughty list this year! Oh, well.
