5-Year-Old Reports The Grinch To Police

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. A 5-year-old from Mississippi named TyLon Pittman was worried that the Grinch might actually steal Christmas, so he did what any responsible citizen would do to prevent a crime - he called 911. One of the local police officers heard about the call and decided to show up at TyLon's house to reassure him that no one, not even the Grinch, can steal his Christmas. It wasn't quite enough for TyLon though. He said, all right, if the Grinch does show up here, you better arrest him. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
