Clown sightings are spreading across Ontario, and our local OPP wants to warn you about the prank,

The OPP says people are dressing up in clown costumes, and scaring people in public places.

Police say there have been arrests, school warnings and police investigations across Canada because of this prank.

Our local OPP says scaring people is wrong, and it could lead to a building locking down for unnecessary reasons.

They say if someone causes an officer to do a false investigation, they could be charged with Public Mischief.
