In recent weeks, several people have reported strange "men in black" standing on the side of roads in Muscatine County, Iowa. Some have witnessed the unusual trenchcoat-clad figures stepping into the roadway just as vehicles pass. In UFOlogy and conspiracy circles, Men In Black are thought to be threatening government agents or perhaps extraterrestrials.
"My son has experienced this and it's no joke," said Beatrice Wilson Strong. "It was really a frightening experience to him."
The Muscatine County Sheriff's Office requests anyone who encounters these creepy characters to call 911.
"We do take this seriously," says the Sheriff's Office on their Facebook page.
