Boy, 5, Calls 911 To Help Police Make Arrest

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.

OK, so maybe no one knows exactly how someone stole a family's Christmas Grinch yet.

Tylon Pittman didn't want the Grinch stealing anybody else's Christmas, so he called 911. The icing on this heartwarming Christmas tale came on Monday, when Byram's Police Department arranged for the boy to literally lock up the Grinch in a holding cell inside the department's headquarters.

Video posted to Facebook by TeDera Dwayne Graves II showed the interaction between his little brother and a police officer.

"Our dispatcher posted a status on Facebook that she had received a call from a little boy. and he told her he thought the Grinch was going to be coming to steal his Christmas", Develle said.

Officer Lauren Develle took his call and showed up at the house shortly after to reassure TyLon that she would not let the Grinch steal any presents this year. "But to dial 911, oh my God, no". Byram's police chief, Luke Thompson, encouraged him to return when he was 21 to apply to become an official part of the force.

Once the Grinch served his time, Tylon got to tour the jail and was sure to offer his services to the department, should they need him to save the holidays again.

"He told them to call him anytime and that he would come and help", said Brown.
