Two large men dressed in black with bloody clown masks invaded a home in Middle Tennessee.

The home invasion happened last month in Cheatham County. Deputies say the invaders took flat screen TVs, thousands in cash, and the victim's marijuana.

Police say the victim was so scared he told them he's a drug dealer.

"When someone calls you and openly admits that narcotics was stolen from their house, it just kind of speaks to the severity of the crime and how frightened this individual was," said Det. Michael Pate.

Police were able to track down the men disguised as clowns after the home invader posed for a picture on Facebook with the mask he used to rob the victim. Police say the victim picked the mask out of a lineup.

The two invaders are now charged with aggravated armed robbery, and the victim is also facing drug charges.

Police say he now no longer wants to be in the drug dealing business.
