A 22-year-old Lexington woman was charged Monday after allegedly calling 911 three times earlier this month to report “suspicious” clown sightings.
Ashley Nicole Cross faces one count each of the unlawful use of 911 and providing false information to law enforcement, the Lexington Police Department said Tuesday.
The 911 calls were made between September 8 and September 11 and all reported a “suspicious” clown sighting at the Lauren Ridge Apartments at 500 Carlen Avenue.
Lexington police investigated the reported sightings and determined that the calls were a hoax by Cross.
Cross turned herself in to authorities on Monday, was booked and released on bond.
