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. The icing on this heartwarming Christmas tale came on Monday, when Byram's Police Department arranged for the boy to literally lock up the Grinch in a holding cell inside the department's headquarters. "Watch out for the Grinch, because the Grinch is going to steal Christmas, okay?"

The police assured the young MS boy that Christmas would be okay.

Pittman then called TyLon to the door where the grinning officer stood.

"I'm not going to let that happen".

"TyLon's brother, who is home from the air force, made a decision to post a video of his little brother's call to the police on Facebook".

"When they call me and they say it's going so fast and they have a gun, I'm going to chase them so fast", Tylon said.
