“The fact the police department had to make this announcement means more than enough people called,” one man wrote.
Department officials responded to the man's comment, as well as others' questions asking if someone really did call 911.
“The call was given out as a ‘suspicious person lying in a driveway with bloody handprints on the garage,’” the response read. “Officers responded with lights/sirens until the first officer arrived to see this.”
Another of the department’s followers wrote that she and her family did a similar prank one year using the deck of their home.
"We dressed (a) dummy and had it looking like (it was) falling off the deck," the woman wrote. "Got lots of response."
Other commenters did not find the Halloween prank as funny.
“I might be a buzzkill, but I just don’t think this is a good idea,” one woman wrote.
She wrote that pranks like the one pictured could result in someone truly injured being ignored and not getting the proper aid.
"I'm good with pumpkins and such, but I would leave the horror in Hollywood," the woman wrote.
