Cantonment Woman Finds Clown Burglarizing Her Home

October 18, 2019

A Cantonment woman walked into her home to find a burglar wearing a clown mask and wig running toward her screaming, according the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies responded to a burglary in progress call in the 3000 block of Pine Forest Road. The victim told deputies she walked into her town house as a female wearing a clown mask and wig came running out of a back bedroom.

The victim said the woman wearing the clown mask ran into another town house and slammed the door.

Deputies made contact with 33-year old Julianna Josephine Ciano in the neighboring townhome where they found a Halloween type mask on the bed and a blond wig under the bed, according to the arrest report. Ciano was charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling, trespassing in an occupied structure and criminal mischief with an enhancement of wearing mask or disguise while committing an offense.

The victim did not find anything missing, but she found a screwdriver in her bedroom, and a Coke can and a makeup brush in her bathroom that were not hers, the arrest report states. A bathroom drawer had also been knocked out and a cosmetic box had been moved.

Ciano was booked into the Escambia County Jail where she remained without bond Friday morning.

    I do not possess the credentials to say that she is mentally ill, but I am of the opinion that mental illness has a hand in her behavior.

    A lot of mentally ill people out in our society needing institutional care, however these programs must be funded. Hopefully she will be sent to a facility were she can receive help; at least she will be in a structured environment in jail or prison. I encourage an eval and treatment, else she is going to go on to the next offense. The Cianos, as any family, are not immune to this. Every family has someone with a problem of some sort and to varying degrees.

    Oh wow its hard to not notice the last name. I wonder if she is related to the Famous car dealer in Pensacola? I bet the media has been trying to contact him for comments and further clarification of what happened.
