Santa vs shoplifters

A German Santa turned crimefighter when he leapt into action to chase two shoplifters. Santa Claus Dieter Thurn, 52, was in his grotto in a department store in Bremen when he saw the crooks filling their rucksacks with expensive cosmetics, reports

Thurn flew after the pair and managed to hold them down until the police arrived. Daniel Ingeborg, six, who was visiting the store with his mother, told local press: “Santa’s so cool. He gives presents and fights crime. He’s like Superman but better.”
