Georgia Relatives Arrested For False Scary Clown Reports
Two people were in jail in Georgia on Thursday for calling 911 with fake reports of clowns trying to lure children into a van as claims of such sightings spread to a third Southern state.
Police in South Carolina, North Carolina and now Georgia have been on alert in recent weeks, chasing reports of people dressed as clowns and exhibiting creepy behavior.
The Troup County Sheriff’s Office responded on Wednesday to a report of people dressed as clowns standing outside a white van.
Questioned by investigators, Brandon Jerome Moody, 26, admitted he was aware of recent complaints of clowns in the area and had fabricated the sighting.
The sheriff’s office said Rebecca Moody, 27, Brandon’s sister-in-law also called 911 with a false report.
Both face misdemeanor charges of obstruction of an officer and unlawful conduct during a 911 call.
