Police blame ghosts for damage

Romanian cops have closed a vandalism investigation that left local houses in ruins by concluding ghosts were to blame.

Families living in Lilieci reported windows broken, bicycles flying through the air, objects moving on tables and candles blown out when there is no wind. When they complained they were being hounded by evil spirits to police they were laughed at. But after officers saw the evidence with their own eyes they filed a report saying that ghosts were to blame.

Mircea Hadimbu, 68, who says his house has now been completely wrecked, said: "The windows started to break one by one. I saw two bicycles moving through the air on their own." His sister Melentina Bocancea, 78, who lives nearby, added: "There were cups flying around the house and candles I lit were blown out as soon as I put a match to them even though there was not a breath of wind in the house." A police spokesman said: "There were bottles and things flying around.

"I did not know what to dodge first. We can find nothing to suggest it was anything other than what the people claim." A priest has been called in to perform exorcisms of houses in the town in the hope that the attacks will finally stop.

When I was in the police department we got occasional calls that would make us smile or shake our heads, and other times we’d just go “Huh..”

Reminds me of once, in 1992, I was working midnight shift in the comm center, and I kept hearing banging noises upstairs in the town hall. I didn’t think much of it because sometimes the town clerk worked late. But when it was still happening at 2:00 am, I called in one of the patrolmen to do a quick walk-through to make sure someone wasn’t up there, or a door wasn’t left open.

He came in and while I was giving him the incident number (everything HAD to be documented timewise) and he heard it too. We both thought it was a door left ajar, I told him I’d have checked myself but couldn’t leave the comm center.

He went up there and everything was locked, closed and secure. He came back down and it happened again. He went back up and again, nothing. He wrote in his incident report —

“Suspicious activity. Undersigned heard door slamming and other activity, ghost gone on arrival.”

We never heard the end of it, either. Midnight shifts were always so weird lol.

Instead of a Ghost investigator it would be more prudent to consult a Exorcist.
