Alleged Clown Thief Denies Allegation
An update has been reported on the clown thief of Cookeville. A man who identifies himself as BoBo the Clown says he had an agreement with the owner of a Cookeville garbage bin to clean it out and remove it. The owner had complained to police that BoBo had inquired about the garbage bin and then took it away without permission. Bob Coleman, aka BoBo, told the Cookeville Herald-Citizen that he understood there was an agreement and that he had worked hard to remove the bin. He said he sold it for scrap as one of his jobs. Coleman said he is known as BoBo the Clown because he performs as a clown at children’s birthday parties.
