The child had been watching videos online of the Grinch doing his Grinchy deeds before he called police. He opened the door to find an officer from the Byram Police Department. "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!"
