Pennsylvania police say they’re “terrified” to remove a prankster’s red balloons from sewer grates across the city.

The Lititz Borough Police Department told CBS News that more than 20 balloons have been recovered around town. The balloons seems to be a nod to the horror movie, “It”, based on a novel by Stephen King. The movie features a killer clown who stalks and lures children into the sewers with red balloons.

The department posted about the incident on its Facebook page.

“It” premieres September 8.
