Boy calls 911 to catch the Grinch


Pittman's brother posted two video clips of the visit on Facebook Saturday.

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.

"I'm looking for a little boy who was watching 'The Grinch, '" Officer Lauren Develle explained.

"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", she said.

Tylon's mother Teresa Brown-Pittman told local WLBT that her son "calls people all the time", but she was shocked that he called 911.

"What are you going to do if he tries to steal your Christmas?" the officer asks. "The look on his face was so serious". TyLon then put the Grinch in a holding cell, saving Christmas for all the little boys and girls around the world. "I won't let that happen", Develle told TyLon.

But TyLon said: 'He steals everybody's Christmas'.

OK, so maybe no one knows exactly how someone stole a family's Christmas Grinch yet. But he was still anxious the Grinch might find a way to steal everyone's presents and decorations.

The Byram Police Department was ready to help TyLon. But before they finished the job, another Grinch stole them, the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office said.

Byram Police Chief Luke Thompson presented TyLon with a Grinch doll so he could always remember the occasion.

"He would not let him out at all", Graves said.

TyLon had been watching videos online when he became alarmed about the Grinch.

To the real-life Grinch: We're sure the family will still have a Merry Christmas. But that's not all.
