MONSON, Mass. (WWLP) – Monson police say that they found a scary clown mask, and an Airsoft gun inside a car during a traffic stop Sunday evening.
According to a posting on the department’s official Facebook page, the stop was not related to those items, but they did caution the people inside the car about “the potential risk that could result from their possession and use.”
