Little boy to matters into his own hands when he learned of the Grinch's plan to steal Christmas, he just did what his parent had told him if he ever needs help - call 911. TyLon Pittman, 5, was watching videos on a cell phone on Saturday about the Grinch's plan to steal the special day, so he called the cops in Byram, Mississippi, for help. He ended up hanging up, but the 911 dispatcher called back to find out what was going on.
That's when officer Lauren Devele heard about the little boy and his dilemma, so she decided to drive over and assure the boy that she would stop him. The video was posted to Facebook by Tylon's older brother, in the video, Devele asks the little boy what he would do if the Grinch tried to steal Christmas, he said "I want y'all to come back to my house and take him to jail," he said. And he wasn't playing around. He even went as far to show Devele the video on his phone of what the Grinch was saying, " I just want to tell you something. Watch for the Grinch, because the Grinch is going to steal Christmas, okay?
"You thought the Grinch was going to steal your Christmas, for real?" his mother, TeResa asked him. That's when TyLon replied with, "He steals everybody's Christmas," not skipping a beat and as dead serious as possible. The police department came up with a great idea and had TyLon come down to the station an lock up the Grinch. Ha Ha, How cute is that?
TyLon, who wants to be a police officer one day, was made an honorary junior officer for the day. He helped escort the Grinch from a police car to the holding cell at the station. "For them to go this far and have this happen when he wants to be a police officer, it means a lot,"TeResa said. "And it just shows that there are some really good people out there."
