A 5-year-old MS boy called police to prevent the Grinch from stealing Christmas - and police made an arrest.
The police assured the young MS boy that Christmas would be okay.
"You have saved Christmas for the people of Byram", the Grinch told TyLon.
TyLon finally got his chance to ask the Grinch that question on Monday, when the Byram Police Department brought in a character dressed as the Grinch, telling TyLon they were putting him in a holding cell for the attempted theft of Christmas.
TyLon in return asked the Grinch: "Why are you stealing Christmas?" and after a moment of thought, the Grinch just shrugged his shoulders, USA Today reported.

A senior administration official told the Reuters news agency that the White House would issue a formal statement of blame on Tuesday.
TyLon's older brother, TeDera Graves, posted a few pictures and videos of his brother's encounter on Facebook. The Grinch was even put in jail.
But TyLon said: 'He steals everybody's Christmas'. "If he gets your number, he's going to call you and blow you up".
Tylon offered to track down any suspects for the police whenever they need help. 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.
"When you turn 21, come back and I'm going to give you a job application, OK?" he said.
