The Douglass Township Police are receiving numerous reports and have multiple units in the area of Grist Mill Rd near Ironstone Park for what appears to be a heavy-set gentleman with a beard, flying on some type of sleigh. He was last spotted hundreds of feet above the neighborhood. We have several calls for excessive noise in the area (intermittent sounds of bells) and someone on rooftops. Children in Douglass Township are advised, if they haven’t already to get the cookies and milk out for Santa.  And then head straight to bed.
