Nine police officers disguised themselves as Victorian carol singers to carry out a drugs raid.
The Dorset Police officers were dressed in cloaks and top hats and were carrying lanterns when they arrived at their intended target in Weymouth.
With stab-proof vests and CS spray under their costumes, the officers sang carols until the door was answered.
They then searched the house and seized £400 worth of cocaine. Two people were arrested and later released on bail.
A police spokesman said: "It was a successful operation. The carol singing disguise was used as a way of getting near the property and surprising the people inside.
"We knew there would be a few people in the house so we had to be prepared and fortunately we got a result."
