This whole clown thing needs to stop and I'm glad police everywhere are on the lookout to do such a thing.

Police in Mandeville have accused two teenagers of trying to scare people while wearing a clown mask.

18-year-old Ryan Bailey of Mandeville and a 16-year-old were given summons on Wednesday for wearing prohibited masks in public places.

The incident report states that officers received a call about scary clowns in a car frightening people. One clown would get out of the passenger side of the car and try to scare people.

Officers quickly spotted the car upon arrival and pulled them over. Bailey was the driver while the other teen was the passenger.

Officers say a mask was found on the floorboard.
