According to The Associated Press, police in Pennsylvania are investigating after a police officer mistook two tourists and a tour guide for burglars and arrested them. The officer reportedly passed by an old Civil War-era building in Gettysburg and saw flashlights inside. Thinking he was witnessing a burglary in progress, he went in, handcuffed, searched and detained the three ghost hunters at gunpoint.
It was later confirmed that the tour guide had permission to use the allegedly haunted building for tours.
I hope all the burglars out there are taking notes. Because apparently the ol’ “hunting for ghosts” story actually works. That’s the best built in excuse ever. Ghost hunters and burglars probably dress the same. I imagine they have similar styles. They both have to be quiet, they both use flashlights and they’re both insane. Now that I think of it ghost hunters and burglars are pretty much indistinguishable from each other. I wonder if Scooby Doo and his band of assholes were actually burglars. If they were, I just discovered the greatest fictional cover up in history. I think i just blew my own mind.
