Mayville, Wisconsin - Two Wisconsin boys trying to get on Santa’s “good list” ended up with the police at their door instead.

The boys, ages three and six, got ahold of their father’s cell phone and dialed 911 in an attempt to contact Santa himself.

“When they get together, they are devils,” the children’s mother, Jennifer Becker told

The boys wanted to tell Santa what they wanted for Christmas.

“We didn’t know what the situation was,” said Officer Christopher MacNeill.

Police showed up and talked to the boys about calling Santa.

They got a tour of the police station and got some lasting advice.

“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 said.

The boys were released early… on good behavior.
