Cops in Mississippi arrested ‘The Grinch’ after a 5-year-old boy heard he was going to steal Christmas and called to report the plot.
On Monday, a Grinch was busted after TyLon Pittman called 911 and said, “Watch for that little Grinch. Because the Grinch is gonna steal Christmas, OK?”
As the boy was on the phone, his mother heard what was happening and apologized to the 911 dispatcher.
The Byram Police Department showed up at Pittman’s door to get the young boy's help finding the Grinch.
The police responded by having one of their officers dress up as the Grinch where they proceeded to go to the boys house and let him arrest the Grinch - then lock him in a cell in the police station.

Oh boy. Somebody's gonna complain about "muh tax dollars" being spent on something like this.
God forbid a modicum of fun be had.
How about an alternative view, why do they have so many extra police officers on the clock that they have time to screw around playing with children?
