Police 'terrified' after red 'It' balloons tied to sewer grate

Police 'terrified' after red 'It' balloons tied to sewer grateā€

Lately, there have been a lot of unusual things happening and they all stem from Stephen King's terrifying novel.

The Lititz Borough Police Department told CBS News that more than 20 balloons have been recovered around town.

A prankster who tied red balloons to sewer grates, the calling card of a homicidal clown-like monster in Stephen King's "It," threw a scare into police in one Pennsylvania town.

Chung said he held talks over the phone with his USA counterpart H.R. The Pentagon had said it was "actively" considering the revision.

The Pennsylvania town of Lititz, just north of Lancaster, is having some fun with the imminent release of It.

"We want the local prankster to know that we were completely terrified as we removed these balloons and respectfully request they do not do that again", the post read.

While some community members may have missed the inspiration behind the prank, the police are canny and know that the balloons were inspired by It, the Stephen King book-turned-movie about a killer clown who lures children into sewers with red balloons. The new film is set to hit theaters Thursday.

Last week, Pennsylvania State Police issued a warning that "creepy clown" sightings could be on the rise due to the movie's release.

The department's post ends with the phrase "you'll float too", a tag line from the movie's trailers.

"They should respect others boundaries", he said.
