How someone stole a family's Christmas Grinch

How someone stole a family's Christmas Grinch

A 5-year-old MS boy called police to prevent the Grinch from stealing Christmas - and police made an arrest.

On Tuesday morning, Good Morning America's Michael Strahan shared the sweetest story about a Mississippi-based boy who called 911 on the Grinch.

Not long after placing that call, a police officer showed up to help.

Dispatchers sent Officer Lauren Develle to TyLon's home to check it out and promise him that the Grinch will not steal his Christmas. "Every Christmas morning, my dad wears these Grinch trousers", she told reporters.

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

"So what are you going to do if he tries to steal your Christmas?" He described the nasty Grinch, and said that he was anxious he was really going to steal Christmas. The video of the endearing interaction between the little boy and Officer Develle quickly went viral.

On Monday, police arrested the Grinch and brought TyLon to the station to confront identify him.

TyLon then allowed the Grinch to be released, WLBT reported. But before they finished the job, another Grinch stole them, the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office said. Thank you to Officer Develle and BPD for not only making my little brother's day but for showing him that being an officer isn't just about stopping crime.
