A 5-year-old boy decided he wasn't going to let anybody steal his Christmas this year.

Tylon Pittman was watching videos on a smartphone when he called authorities after seeing the Grinch taking presents before Christmas, WLBT reported.

Making sure the Grinch would be punished, the Byram Police Department surprised Tylon by allowing him to arrest and take the Grinch into a holding cell at the town's jail.

"Watch out for the Grinch, because the Grinch is going to steal Christmas, OK?"

Video posted to Facebook by TeDera Dwayne Graves II showed the interaction between his little brother and a police officer.

After locking up the Grinch, Tylon wore his Byram PD hat proudly, with a strong sense of accomplishment.

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

Christmas is a time for cheer and goodwill, and when one little boy thought the season could be in serious jeopardy, he took matters into his own hands.

After speaking with Develle, TyLon felt a little better. "Growing up seeing the Grinch every Christmas was my favorite thing". According to the Clarion Ledger, Pittman called the police department last Saturday unbeknownst to the rest of his family after learning on the internet about the green fiend and his motives. 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.
