After several sighting in South Carolina and other states, creepy clown sightings have creeped into Kentucky.

Jamie Hill posted a picture on Facebook showing someone in a clown costume near the Hal Rogers Parkway in London.

"I was in state of shock. I didn't know what to do. I didn't think anyone would believe me about it," Hill said. "I took a picture, I didn't plan on posting it until others started seeing the same thing."

The Laurel County sheriff's office says they have not received complaints about clowns but they say they are aware of what is going on in other states. They don't think the person was necessarily doing anything illegal.

Police in Pulaski County also received a complaint of three people in clown costumes acting suspiciously.

Last month in Greenville, South Carolina, deputies increased patrols after getting new reports that someone dressed as a clown tried to lure children into the woods.

There were several strange clown sightings in the Greenville area last month.

A 12-year-old told deputies that two clowns were in the backyard area.

So, I was a little scared to post this because I didn't think anyone would believe me until Kelly Hill told me that one...
