Santa claus arrested for child pornography.

Authorities in Raleigh North Carolina, USA say a man who was
arrested over the weekend on child pornography charges
worked as a shopping mall Santa Claus.

Local media outlets report that 63-year-old Leander Dewey
Jones of Raleigh is charged with three counts of second-
degree sexual exploitation of a
minor.



Triangle Santa Buddies founder Al Capehart says
Jones is a member of the organization. Its website said he joined last year.

Capehart says Triangle Santa
Buddies doesn’t perform background checks on its
members. Capehart also notes
that Jones had no prior criminal records, so a background check would have
found nothing on him.

Jones is being held in the Wake County jail under a $600,000 bond. Online records
don’t indicate whether he has an attorney to contact for comment on the case.
