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

20 December 2017

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

TyLon told police that he was terrified that the Grinch would steal his Christmas after he had watched YouTube videos about the character.

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.

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.

TyLon then allowed the Grinch to be released, WLBT reported. Develle continued, "It's his favorite movie".

TyLon's brother, TeDera Dwayne Graves, is in the Air Force.

Haley: Women accusing Trump of sexual misconduct should be heard
Asked whether Mr Trump's election settled the matter, Haley said: "That's for the people to decide". When asked about Trump's accusers by Dickerson on Sunday, Haley said the women should be heard.

But TyLon said: 'He steals everybody's Christmas'. "Because the Grinch is gonna steal Christmas, OK?"

"He calls people all the time", said Tylon's mother Teresa Brown-Pittman.

"I want y'all to come back to my house and take him to jail", he said, citing that the Grinch "steals everybody's Christmas". Your bravery is unmatched. Officers then let TyLon lead the festive crook to the holding room for questioning. Thank you to Officer Develle and BPD for not only making my little brother's day but for showing him that being an officer isn't just about stopping crime.

"I just want to tell you something", Pittman told a 911 operator in a recording of the call, according to local paper The Clarion-Ledger.

Thompson said he told TyLon that when he is 21, he can fill out an application to be a real officer.
