A criminal known as “Dangerous Dave” has written a letter to Santa about what he wants for Christmas.

Dave is the creation of the Metropolitan Police Service, which has created the character to promote crime prevention advice over the busy festive period.

In the letter, and accompanying audio, Dave tells Santa he wants expensive presents, wallets and cash.

The MPS has used the letter to remind people to take steps including leaving lights on when they are not at home, not leaving sat navs and other valuables visible in cars, and to keep an eye on bags and belongings when out shopping.

The letter ends: “You see, I’m not planning on being a very good boy Santa but something tells me I won’t be needing you or your silly little elves to get everything I want this year. You see the scariest thing about me is I don’t look like a criminal and have a Christmas wish list all of my own…”

The MPS will be using its Twitter, Facebook and Soundcloud channels to broadcast and publish criminal Dangerous Dave’s Christmas wishlist.
