“I just want to tell you something. Watch for that little Grinch. Because the Grinch is gonna steal Christmas, okay?” TyLon said on the 911 call, which was obtained by ABC News.
This 5-year old boy saves Christmas this year by calling 911 and reporting that the Grinch is going to steal his presents. Officer Lauren Develle took his call and showed up at the house shortly after to reassure TyLon that she would not let the Grinch steal any presents this year.
TeResa Brown Pittman, TyLon’s mother 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.
As you can see in this video of the phone call recording, anyone would believe that the Grinch is going to come and destroy Christmas for him. We feel you, TyLon.
To make Christmas special for TyLon, the Byram Police Department invited him to the station to give him a full tour of the station. When the boy arrived, officers surprised him with the Grinch in the back of a police car. Officers then let TyLon lead the festive crook to the holding room for questioning.
Brown added that TyLon always wanted to be a police officer when he is older. Way to go TyLon on reporting the heinous crime the Grinch probably would have done!
