TCHULA, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Creepy Clowns are roaming around Tchula. The police chief is sending out a warning tonight that he will not tolerate anyone terrorizing people in his town.

"I am more afraid for the clown than I am for the citizens because pretty much everyone here has shotguns," said Chief Kenneth Hampton.

A rash of alleged creepy clown sightings have spread across the United States. Now it has hit Tchula and the chief says it is no laughing matter.

"I still don't understand. I think it is some type trend," said Chief Hampton. "It is basically a bunch of idiots running around in clown suits without any regard for their life."

The chief has received several complaints this week of people dressed in creepy costumes scaring those who live and work in the community.

"My grandkids talking about a clown." said a Tchula resident. "I told them as long as I have blood running through my vain, they need not worry about being scared."

Chief Hampton said he even spotted one with his own eyes, but the person ran away.

"He had overalls, like the farmer overalls and a multi-colored wig," said the chief. "He ran off holding what looked like a machete of some sort." 

The chief has a warning for the evil clowns terrorizing the town.

"Stop it. said Chief Hampton. "I don't want to be the one to ride up on you and have encounter with you because I don't think it's going to end well."
