5-Year-Old Calls 911 to Report Grinch Stealing Christmas


Five-year-old TyLon Pittman - with a little help from the police department in Byram, Mississippi - put the notorious Christmas-stealing Grinch behind bars.

On Saturday, TyLon called 911 to report the Grinch's crimes to local police, alleging that the creature was attempting to steal presents from children before Christmas.

The officer in MS assured the young boy that his Christmas was safe and that the Grinch would not be stealing his toys. The operator, Officer Lauren Develle, visited Pittman's home after the call.

Tylon's brother shared the encounter on social media and the video went viral racking up nearly 35,000 shares.

Officer Develle told The Clarion Ledger that Dr. Seuss's How The Grinch Stole Christmas has a special place in her heart as well, since she's spent a lifetime being compared to Cindy Lou Who.

"I want you to come to my house and take him to jail", Pittman said. But someone did take a page from the Christmas classic and flipped it. He described the nasty Grinch, and said that he was anxious he was really going to steal Christmas. "I'm not going to let that happen".

In his five-star review posted to the Byram Police Department's Facebook page, TyLon's big brother, TeDera Graves II, a USAF airman, said, "It's the little things like this that go unnoticed, especially in society today, with what police officers do".

After locking up the Grinch for good, TyLon joined Thompson for a tour of the police station. TyLon reportedly asked the Grinch, but the green creature just shrugged his shoulders before shaking the little boy's hand and thanking him for saving Christmas.
