One young Christmas fan decided to take matters in to his own hands in Jackson, Mississippi this week.
TyLon Pittman had been watching clips of the festive-themed Jim Carrey movie 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' when he became concerned by the titular character's activities and dialled 911.
His mother didn't believe him until a police officer turned up at their house and knocked on the door.
"My five-year-old brother called the police and said that the Grinch is stealing people's Christmas and he don't want him to steal his, so they really came to our house," wrote his brother, TeDera Graves.
The officer, Lauren Develle, who also happened to be a fan of the movie, told TyLon that she would protect everyone's gifts from the Grinch and send the miserly antagonist to jail if he tried anything.
"We thought it was funny, we were shocked he actually did it," said Graves.
"But we had a talk with him about when it's ok to call 911."
