The Spartanburg, South Carolina, Police Department responded after getting a 9-1-1 call about a child stuck in a gutter on Monday and arrived to find fake child legs sticking out of a gutter and the head of a white-faced clown hidden in the shadows. The scene was inspired by the horror movie ‘It,’ about a clown who lures children to their doom, including one boy who was snatched into a storm drain. In their post, the police saw the humor in the display, but chided its creators for leaving out the clown’s calling card: a single red balloon.
