Tylon Pittman, of Byram, was watching a video on his smartphone and didn't like what he saw, so he chose to call 911.

TyLon Pittman, a 5-year-old who aspires to be a police officer when he grows up, called 911 to warn them that The Grinch was on his way.

Nonetheless, the Byram Police Department showed up at Pittman's door for the young boy's help in finding the Grinch.

TyLon Pittman's brother captured the interaction on video, which he posted on his Facebook page. "My 5 year old brother called the police and said that the Grinch is stealing people Christmas and he don't want him to steal his so they really came to our house!" "Then the Grinch talked to him and said he was sorry and that he would stop stealing Christmas presents". But that didn't stop TyLon from offering up his assistance in the meantime.

To make sure justice was served, the Byram Police Department set up a big surprise for Tylon, allowing him to arrest and take the Grinch into a holding cell at the jail. TyLon reportedly asked the Grinch, but the green creature just shrugged his shoulders before shaking the little boy's hand and thanking him for saving Christmas.

TyLon has always wanted to be a police officer, his mother added.

Byram Police Chief Luke Thompson told ABC News he invited TyLon to tour the station.

"He told them to call him anytime and that he would come and help", said Brown.
