Police mistake ghost hunters for burglars

A group of people on a ghost tour in Gettysburg were arrested after police mistook them for burglers.
The group had been touring an allegedly haunted civil war era building to which the first Union general had been taken when he was injured during the Battle of Gettysburg. Now a Victorian-style photography studio, the building is said to play host to paranormal activity and is a popular destination for ghost tours in the area.

Not everything went according to plan on a recent tour during Thanksgiving however when two ghost hunters and a tour guide ended up being arrested at gunpoint by a police officer who believed that they had broken in to the building. The patrolman had been passing by when he noticed flashlights through the windows and had automatically assumed that the place was being robbed.

The matter was eventually sorted out after police contacted Gettysburg Ghost Tours to confirm that the group had permission to be there. All three individuals were later released without charge.

Well, At least the night was not uneventful for them. I'd call that a result really, At least they got a scare, Even if it was not quite the sort of scare they were hoping for! And Child of Bast, Your profile pic both amuses and terrifies me in equal measures!

Guilty untill proven innocent will teach those Ghost Hunters to use night vision to see around instead of flashlights.

If thieves were only so creative ... ah, yes officer, it seems we were following this ghostly aura when the safe door suddenly busted open exposing this very large quantity of cash. And, yes, you can check with our tour company, Ghostbusters.

Well the group had permission to be there, but the Police were doing their job as well. I wonder if this has happened to other Ghost Hunter groups. The question needs to be asked, Did they have laughing on the EVP recording?
