Dog House Blog, Police Get Ghost Busted!


Molly The Wally does The Blair Witch Project.

Police receive hundreds of emergency calls because of Halloween.

During Halloween, witches, ghosts and ghouls regularly roam the streets and needless to say the police will be gearing up to investigate a number of spooky happenings. The police in the past have received hundreds of calls from freaked out Brits who are convinced they are being haunted, chased by zombies and stalked by ghouls and vampires. Previous emergency calls have included reports of a poltergeist stealing car and house keys and a devil possessing a doll. Opps Chucky is back again! Among the 26 calls to Gloucestershire Police was one from a woman saying a poltergeist had locked her out of her home after she returned from dinner at a pub. Maybe it was less poltergeist activity and more to do with ‘spirits’ consumed. There were reports of zombies roaming across fields and even one of werewolves trying to break down a front door. Police investigating the zombie incident in Wales discovered it was actually the set of a horror film being shot at Pembrey, Carmarthenshire. One caller demanded the police send ‘Ghostbusters’ round seemingly unaware that it was a hit 1980s film and not real. Was that because there was something strange in the neighbourhood we ask? Norfolk is a popular bloodsucking area with five reported sightings of vampires and Merseyside police were called seven times with reports of ghosts and witches. Lincolnshire Police logged five incidents involving vampires, two concerning werewolves, nine involving zombies and 20 calls about wizards. Harry Pot Head again! Officers in the West Midlands dealt with 57 sightings of ghosts. The ghosts at properties had been nothing more than shadows on the walls. Needless to say most spooked callers were told to stop drinking and go back to bed.

  1. Hahaaaa that's funny because we are pretty sure our house is hunted you see, it was built over what was "the commons", over 400 years ago, and they all burnt down to ashes! When we garden sometimes we unearth old artifacts, and burnt pots! And in the 1800's there are police reports of missing girls and a man hung himself !!! Sweet dreams hehe

    We wish we were a fly on the wall when the calls came into those police stations - at least it must have cheered up their day.

  11. Hi Molly,

    Looks like the police may have to put out a ghost number to call, and set up their own Halloween Flying Squad to deal woth all those troblesome nasties that come out after dark. I'm armed and dangerous with my own anti spirit kit, a bottle of Coke!

  14. While not police related...in my area on Halloween, hackers have been known to get into the controls of lit-up street signs (the kind that usually warn of road construction and such) and will change the sign to read "Zombies Ahead, Proceed at your own Risk!" or some such silly nonsense. It's always good for a laugh!

  22. Now you state "The ghosts at properties had been nothing more than shadows on the walls" do ghost really cast shadows?? Maybe the police are looking up the wrong alley.

  39. Hilarious that, with all the marketing that goes around Halloween, people would still get confused. I think you're consuming of "spirits" sounds spot on! :D

  40. The police are certainly busy on Halloween. We are glad to hear most of the reports are unfounded. But Molly, being we are cats and prone to fright, are you sure there are no ghost about?

    Happy Halloween,
