More clown sightings in Trail

Trail RCMP report seven more clown sightings since last Friday, some proven to be false.

Local police say there’s been more sightings of creepy clowns, seven since last Friday.

“Trail RCMP continue to receive reports of clown sightings in Trail and Fruitvale,” says RCMP Sgt. Darren Oelke. “Since last Friday there have been seven reports made to the police – some of the reports have been proven to be false.”

No individuals dressed as clowns have been located or identified by the police, he added.

Social media has been reporting clown sightings across Canada and the United States causing some citizens to become fearful.

Trail RCMP have no reason to believe any of the ‘clown sightings’ pose a danger to the public, Oelke said.

“Police are concerned for the safety of any individual dressing up as a clown for the purpose of carrying on this prank as some of the general public may interpret their actions as a threat. Any clown sighting should be

reported to the police immediately.”
