Two cited in clown incident outside Thomson Walmart

Two teenagers have been cited in one of the incidents involving clown masks at the Thomson Walmart. The McDuffie County Sheriff's Office says 18-year-old Christopher Hayes and 18-year-old Joshua Hadden are both charged with disorderly conduct.

According to an incident report from Thursday evening, the teens admitted to trying to scare people. Just before 10:30 p.m., one teen was wearing the clown mask as he drove through the parking lot. Witnesses were able to give a license plate number to investigators. That's what led deputies to question the teens. The mask was found in the Walmart parking lot.

Investigators say there is no evidence tying these two suspects to the incident at the bus stop in the Davis Circle area. That incident is still under investigation.

Hayes and Hadden are scheduled to appear in McDuffie County Magistrate Court on October 20, 2016 at 3 p.m.

The McDuffie County Sheriff's Office is thanking the public for the help in solving this case.
