Santa hit up the McClennan County Jail in Waco on Christmas Eve bringing candy for the officers and even a surprise for the inmates. Extra phone time.

Yup, Santa told the men and women serving time at the jail that he had put in a good word and that the phone company at the jail would give each of them phone cards so they could speak longer to relatives over the holidays.

GTL provided each inmate two calling cards. KWTX reports jail administrator Capt. Ricky Armstrong said the visit from Santa lifted everyone's spirits. Some sleeping inmates got woken up by others surprised to see that Santa had stopped by.
