Child becomes honorary cop, captures Christmas bandit

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (WTOC) -

A Christmas bandit was no match for Covington, Georgia's newest cop.

Five year old Morgan Steward nabbed the Christmas bandit trying to steal toys.

Officer Steward suffers from spinal muscular atrophy, keeping him confined to a wheelchair.

Just weeks ago he was made an honorary cop, fulfilling one of his biggest dreams.

Now, Steward was able to make another dream come true, arresting the bad guy.
