Two light-fingered Christmas present thieves were arrested on Christmas Eve, according to Luleå police.

Somewhat ignoring the festive spirit, the men were caught working their way through letterboxes in Kalix and Luleå in search of valuable gifts and letters. Both men are known to police in the area and are now being held on suspicion of theft.

"They'll get to spend Christmas with us," said Erik Kumme, duty officer at Luleå police.
