While the story of IT takes place in Maine, Pennsylvania police have retrieved red balloons that popped up ahead of the movie. They seem to have a goo sense of humor about it, though.

The Lititz Borough Police Department posted to their Facebook page pictures, and a lighthearted message to the prankster that put helium filled red balloons on a storm grate.

I'm sure that the release of the movie will be a revisit to last year's clown craze that saw people arrested for being the creepy clowns, or for falsely reporting creepy clowns.
