?(NBC) - One Florida Santa is now on the "bad list" after police found something extra in his bag, and it wasn't toys!

Jacksonville police were investigating a portion of the city Monday after receiving numerous phone calls about drug activity in the area.

Police said that’s when they saw the suspect, Isaac Geiger, who was wearing a Santa suit, in a U-Haul van.

Officers said they watched Geiger go to and from the truck multiple times, with no one else approaching it.

When they approached Geiger, he took off.  Police said there was a bag of marijuana that was clearly visible in the driver's seat of the van.

Police were eventually able to take Geiger into custody and found more marijuana, a digital scale, pills and a large amount of cash in his U-Haul.

Geiger is charged with multiple felonious counts of drug possession with intent to sell and resisting officers without violence.
