MAYVILLE, Wisc. – Two young boys hoping to get their Christmas wish lists to Santa in a hurry wound up getting a visit from police instead.

Blake and Brody Becker reportedly wanted to make sure their wish list made it to Santa, and they borrowed their father’s phone to make the call, according to FOX 13 News sister station FOX 6 in Wisconsin.

“It was determined that a 3-year-old and a 6-year-old had dialed 911 and were attempting to contact Santa Claus,” Mayville Police Officer Christopher MacNeill told FOX 6.

Police were sent to the home, as officers weren’t sure exactly what the situation was. The boys were taken to the police station, where they were given a tour and some advice before being “released.”

“One thing they have to understand is the North Pole is out of our jurisdiction — so there is not much we can do with helping them connect with Santa Claus,” Officer MacNeill told FOX 6.
