Rumor: A scary clown hoax has made it to San Marcos.

Fact: At this time, the San Marcos Police Department has no active cases involving clowns as suspects, witnesses, or victims.


The department is aware that there is at least one spurious clown social media account in San Marcos.  


While there have been no incidents and this appears to be a hoax, residents should always take safety precautions,  keep their doors locked, be aware of their surroundings and call police if they see any suspicious person or activity.
