Tyler Pittman from Mississippi watched enough videos with the Grinch and was very afraid that the villain would be able to steal the holiday. Without thinking twice, the boy dialed 911 and told the dispatcher that the Grinch had to be stopped before something terrible happened.

At first, Taillon's mother thought it was a joke, but after a while there was a knock on the door of their house. Police officer Lauren Develle was standing in the doorway. The girl found the situation funny.

The police officer promised Tailon that the Grinch would not steal Christmas. And the boy said that he already has a plan in case the green villain sneaks into his house:

The story didn't end there. The police still managed to "detain" the criminal in a Santa costume. The Grinch was placed in a cell. Police officer Develle told Tailon that the detainee could be charged with several crimes, including an attempt to steal Christmas. The criminal himself did not resist during the arrest and even shook hands with the vigilant Tailon.

The boy did not want to leave the station until the last moment, so that the criminal could not escape. Biram police Chief Luke Thompson gave Tailon a toy Grinch and even invited him to work in the police when the boy grows up.
