An alleged gang member has landed himself in jail for flashing gang signs in a photo he took while sitting on Santa’s lap.
Uriel Oliva, 18, was arrested early last week after a visit with Santa at the Village Mall in Orange.

Police say that Oliva was under a court order not to associate with members of his street gang, engage in gang activity or hang out at the Village Mall when the photo was taken Dec. 16.
The picture included Oliva and two other members of the Orange County Criminals gang. Oliva’s probation officer apparently spotted the photo on a keychain during a probation check.
