No laughing matter: Clown car stolen

No laughing matter: Clown car stolen: “A clown isn’t smiling now that someone stole his clown car.

Delmer Jefferson drove the miniature, bright yellow tow truck in parades. But on July 5, someone stole the truck from the parking lot of the Za-Ga-Zig Shrine in Altoona.

‘I’m heartbroken,’ said Jefferson, who’s been a clown for the Shriners for more than 30 years. ‘I can’t replace it. And it’s not worth anything to anyone else. It’s a clown car.’

Police Det. Jason Ferguson said the theft is being investigated.

‘This thing is so unique,’ Ferguson said. ‘What would anyone do with it?'”
