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?'”
