(Newser) – Bust out the Ghostbusters jokes: A police officer in New Mexico swears his station is haunted, and he says he's got video to back it up, KOAT reports. Officer Karl Romero was working last weekend and spotted something weird moving on surveillance footage of the Espanola Police Department, he tells the station. "At first I thought it was a podilla, a fly or moth—then I saw the legs," he says. "A ghost." The blurry object appeared to walk right through a gate. "I do believe it was something. It was hard to say, but I do believe in ghosts," detective Solomon Romero tells KHON. He also says that "some officers have felt someone breathing down their necks" while alone at work. (No word on whether the two are related, or whether they're into Halloween pranks.)
