Boy, 5, calls 9-1-1: Grinch trying to steal Christmas

A 5-year-old boy in MS was watching videos of the Grinch over the weekend and got concerned the Grinch might try to ruin HIS Christmas.

TyLon asked the Grinch, "Why are you stealing Christmas?" They showed up with a Grinch and let Tylon arrest him.

The call led a dispatcher to post about the 911 call on Facebook, according to the Clarion Ledger, which caught the attention of a fellow Grinch fan, officer Lauren Develle, who decided to make a personal stop to TyLon's house and keep his home safe from any Christmas theft. The 5-year-old honorary police officer took the Grinch into custody, booking the green-furred villain on charges that included the attempted theft of Christmas. Watch the full clip below. "I want to get him".

"He calls people all the time", his mother, Teresa Brown-Pittman, told the TV station.

In another post, the boy shows the video evidence of the Grinch stealing the presents to the officer.

Clear viewing (before bedtime) for tonight's Geminid meteor shower
The Geminid meteor shower gets the name from the constellation Gemini, though the constellation is not the source of the meteors. Depending on where you are (most of MA , for example), cloudy skies will make meteor shower watching a non-starter tonight.

Develle got his address and went to the home of Tylon Pittman to reassure him his Christmas would be safe, according to the Clarion Ledger.

"We can take him to jail if he comes and tries to steal your Christmas", Develle assured the little boy. "I'm going to ride my motorcycle so fast". Officers then let TyLon lead the festive crook to the holding room for questioning. The Grinch was even put in jail.

"For them to go this far and have this happen, when he wants to be a police officer, it means a lot", said Graves. "You have saved the day", The Clarion-Ledger reported.

"When they call me and they say it's going so fast and they have a gun, I'm going to chase them so fast", Tylon said.
