New Jersey Santa Claus arrested on drug charges

New Jersey retiree Charles Smith 66 was arrested Monday

Be good for goodness sake.

A 66-year-old man who plays Santa Claus has been arrested after cops discovered a crack pipe, empty bags of crack and heroin and a hypodermic needle in his vehicle during a traffic stop.

South Hackensack police officers also found empty bags of crack and heroin, along with a hypodermic needle, during a search of Charles Smith's vehicle on Monday.

During the stop, police said they found hypodermic needles and empty bags of crack and heroin in the auto of the former NJ Transit worker.

One picture has Smith in the Santa Claus outfit posing with Marines in May 2016, according to the paper.

Smith, who volunteers at Toys for Tots, was arrested, police said.

Smith was arrested and charged with two counts of drug paraphernalia and a hypodermic needle. They say an officer saw the crack pipe next to a Santa Claus costume.

The Associated Press reported trying to contact Smith but was unsuccessful. It's unknown if Smith has an attorney who could comment for him.
