‘Santa Cop’ came to town?

Santa Cop’ came to town?
Social Media is reporting that there is a ‘Secret Santa’ Police Officer who was dispensing 100$ bills to some Monteal area motorists. Santa Cop was reportedly given 50 100 bills, totalling $5000.00 to give away on behalf of a rich friend.
He seems to be focusing more on recipients who are driving older vehicles.
He stops the driver as if they have comitted an infraction, and then hands them cash instead of a ticket!

Merry Christmas to you and your kind friend Santa Cop!
