VIDEO: Missouri Deputies Give Out Monetary Gifts to Motorists for "Secret Santa"

Earlier this month, in Kansas City, Missouri, the Jackson County Sheriff's Department was out looking for people. And when they spotted a subject, they went after them, in a sting operation the likes of which this country has never seen.

What made this operation especially unusual was the man behind it: a fellow in a red hat -- known to these men only as "Secret Santa."

Every year this anonymous, wealthy businessman gives out about $100,000 worth of $100 bills to random strangers. But this year, instead of doing it all himself, he deputized these deputies to give away much of it, CBS News reports.

And so, the officers went out to do Santa's bidding. They specifically went after people they thought would appreciate it most. Cars driving while dented or with visible signs of Bondo were likely targets.

"What do you want the officers to get out of this?" Secret Santa was asked.

"Joy," he answered. "You know, as tough as they are they have hearts that are bigger than the world."

Great PR Santa. Thanks for helping people in need and the police at the same time.
