Grinch Arrested After 5-year-old's Heroic 911 Call to Save Christmas

This is really cute … A 5-year-old boy in Jackson, Mississippi, called 911 … because he was worried the Grinch would show up at his house and “steal his Christmas.” Police Officer Lauren Develle heard about little Tylon Pittman, and as a fan of the How the Grinch Stole Christmas movie since childhood, she paid the scared boy a visit. She showed up at his house to say, "The Grinch is not going to come steal your Christmas. I won't let that happen." Thankfully, Tylon’s older brother caught this entire visit on tape and posted it to Facebook

Well then the wheels of justice started turning. On Monday, the Grinch was apprehended and escorted into a holding cell by officer Develle and honorary junior officer TyLon, wearing his newly acquired Byram Police Department baseball cap.

The Grinch could be charged with crimes including attempted theft of Christmas, Develle said. It wasn't as much about charging him for his wrongdoing as keeping a promise to her new friend.
