A FIVE-year-old boy phoned 911 over the weekend to report the Grinch - ie the Christmas-hating character from How The Grinch Stole Christmas - to the proper authorities in Byram, Mississippi.
On Tuesday morning, Good Morning America'sMichael Strahan shared the sweetest story about a Mississippi-based boy who called 911 on the Grinch.
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.
A 5-year-old MS boy did the unthinkable when he thought the Grinch was going to ruin his Christmas.
"I just want to tell you something", Tylon told the operator during the recorded call.
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.
But the Grinch just shrugged his shoulders, the Ledger reported. "It's his favorite movie".
OK, so maybe no one knows exactly how someone stole a family's Christmas Grinch yet.
"It took him a while to decide that he wanted to let him out", TeResa Brown Pittman, TyLon's mother, told ABC News.
TyLon Pittman's brother captured the interaction on video, which he posted on his Facebook page.
"I asked (TyLon) if he saw the Grinch, what would he do, and he said he'd call us and get us to come take him to jail". They showed up with a Grinch and let Tylon arrest him. "Your bravery is unmatched; you have saved the day".
