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

Brown said when she first heard that TyLon made a 911 call, she thought it was a joke - until Develle showed up at their front door late Saturday evening. That prompted a police officer to come knocking at his door. She added, "I asked her to send me his address".

But almost an hour later, on Saturday night, there was a knock at the door. "So I ended up looking around and I found him". Develle continued, "It's his favorite movie. Growing up seeing the Grinch every Christmas was my favorite thing".

TyLon's older brother, TeDera Graves, posted a few pictures and videos of his brother's encounter on Facebook. He, thinking his family and friends would enjoy the amusing interaction between his brother and Develle.

'I cannot make this up!

On Tuesday morning, Good Morning America's Michael Strahan shared the sweetest story about a Mississippi-based boy who called 911 on the Grinch. He had seen a clip from the animated classic, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" - and was determined to ensure that Byram's finest were on the case.

"He steals everybody's Christmas!" the wise youngster warned.

Virginia is increasingly tilting blue in recent elections: Hillary Clinton won the state in 2016, and Barack Obama won it twice. If the tally stands, the House of Delegates will be evenly split between Republicans and Democrats.


TyLon's mom said that her son wants to be a police officer when he grows up, and that the experience, while bringing people a little joy, was also a very meaningful one. "If he gets your number, he's going to call you and blow you up".

The Grinch himself was caught red-handed - or would it be green-handed? - in MS this week.

"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". "Your bravery is unmatched", the Grinch said. After serving his time in the holding cell, Tylon chose to let the Grinch go.

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

TyLon's brother left the Byram Police Department a five-star review and thanked Officer Develle for coming over to reassure his little brother.

"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.
