MILTON, West Virginia –¬†A little girl brought¬†a smile to a police chief’s face after mistaking him for St. Nicholas.

A post by the Milton Police Department in West Virginia shows the sweet little girl cozied up next to Chief Joe Parsons in a booth at a restaurant.

“When a three year old comes up to you during dinner and thinks you are Santa Claus you roll with it,” the police department wrote on Facebook.

She told “Santa” she wants a princess Barbie for Christmas.

“She also now believes Santa is a policeman between Christmases,” wrote the police department. “Wonderful encounter.”
