Prankster tying red balloons to sewer grates in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania police respond to red balloons tied to sewer grates

In the film, Pennywise the clown lurks around a small ME town's sewers, snatching children, and leaving red balloons tied to sewer grates. Lately, there have been a lot of unusual things happening and they all stem from Stephen King's terrifying novel.

In a post on Facebook, the Lititz Borough Police Department say they know the movie is coming to theaters in a couple days and give the prankster creativity for promoting the movie.

In Stephen King's horror tale, "It", red balloons are the calling card of a clown named Pennywise who feeds on children.

The Letitz Borough Police Department in Pennsylvania posted to its official Facebook account on Tuesday that pranksters had "completely terrified" them by tying red balloons to a few sewer grates around town.

Past year around the Halloween season, police departments in the Valley and the rest of the country investigated reports from people frightened by people dressed as clowns. The new film is set to hit theaters Thursday.

"If you're not sure what we're talking about, search "It" and watch the preview, but we suggest watching the preview with a friend or coworker with all the lights on and the sound down low".

The Pennsylvania State Police also recently warned citizens to be on the lookout for a resurgence in unsanctioned clown activity with the new movie on the way (we'd take ominous red balloons over creepy clowns). Not only are they leaving the balloons for others to find, but they're leaving small messages to help build up the fear.
