Although it started in Greenville, SC, it is slowly spreading. “‘It’s illegal. It’s dangerous. It’s inappropriate, and it’s creating community concern so it needs to stop,’ Greenville Police Chief Ken Miller said at a news conference. ‘This is something that we’re taking very seriously, especially because of the allegations of people dressed in clown outfits trying to lure children into the woods.'”
