ESPANOLA, N.M. — Police from the local Espanola Police Department believe that on Sept. 20, an officer encountered a ghost.
Officer Karl Romero of the Espanola Police Department was on duty watching surveillance video from around the station when he spotted something strange. In the surveillance footage, a foggy figure is seen moving through a parking lot and through a secured gate.
“At first I thought it was a fly, a moth, and then I saw the legs and it was a human,” Romero told KOAT.
Detectives say there is no way to get on the grounds of the station without opening the gate or sounding alarms, and neither happened that night.
Others from the police station have reported hearing unusual noises in the middle of the night as well as seeing strange images in the building’s lobby.
Det. Romero said he doesn’t believe the station is built on top of a burial ground but he does believe in ghosts.
He also had another possible explanation for why the ghosts may be roaming:
“We’ve had some unsolved murders in the area,” he said.
