Paranormal investigators encounter burglars

The investigators encountered two men who were robbing the store. Image Credit:
The team had been looking for ghosts at a store in Derby when they ran in to a pair of thieves.
A local paranormal investigation group had been spending the night at Crafty's Airsoft Store, a purveyor of imitation firearms commonly used in shooting game events.

While their all-night vigil unfortunately failed to find any conclusive evidence of the paranormal, investigators Mark Whyatt and Nick Donaldson reported hearing the sound of voices nearby as they were packing up to go home at around 4am in the morning.

As the intrepid pair ventured through the rooms and corridors of the building with their flashlights they managed to catch sight of two figures making a run for it out of the front door.
Whyatt ran after them but was unable to prevent them from escaping on their bikes.

"The thieves were very brave to do what they did because the paranormal investigators were clearly in there, turning the lights on and off and things like that," said store owner Jonathan Craft.

"They used a tomahawk to break in through the fire doors and then went for some of the guns on the wall as well as in the drawers. "

The police are now attempting to hunt down the thieves responsible for the break-in.

Did they have lots of cameras set up? Some teams have nice equipment for people to steal.

Lol. We hear so many unexplained noises around here I've often said if we actually had a burglar, we'd just think it was a ghost.

I got to visit a team of ghosthunters that had been set up for a couple years at an "abandoned hospital" in Oklahoma, and they said when the man who owner the property agreed to let them set up there (he didn't really care about what was going on there, he was just tired of wannabe-ghosthunters breaking in), he handed the lead investigator a pistol and said "If you see one of those trespassers, you know what to do!" The guy recovered after a minute later and refused the gun. "No, sir, I appreciate it, and we'll be happy to do our part to keep people out of the building or call the police or wh... [More]

I thought I have seen one of the ghost shows, where one of the investigators came across a squatter and the squatter ran off. Was it that, or was it one of the flip house shows on HGTV? OMG, I can't remember the difference with my thing for haunted houses, and flipping them or finding them to live in. Although, I think there have been instances where t... [More]
