BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — You can’t make this up. Boca Raton Police repot that a man named Jaret Santa — yes, Santa — was in an argument with Jeremy Kevah at the Mobil Gas Station in the 1400 Block of West Yamato Road. According to police, Santa made verbal threats and displayed a small handgun.
A “be on the lookout” (BOLO) was issued for Santa who was found in the Nordstrom parking garage at the Boca Town Center Mall. The handgun was recovered and — only in Florida — Santa was placed under arrest.
Santa remains in the Palm Beach County Jail on $15,000 bond. He’s officially been charged with “aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill,” and a related charge.
Despite what you may have heard about Santa, he lists his address as the 5500 block of NW 23rd Terrace in Boca.
Everyone does eventually end up in Florida. Even Santa.
