CASCADE, Iowa. (KWWL) – An Iowa restaurant may need to call the Ghostbusters.

The owners say surveillance video captured what appears to be paranormal activity.

Pat Orr owns the Maid-Rite in Cascade and says his surveillance cameras caught something spooky one night in mid-April.

A shadow was seen hovering over the dishwashing sink.

Orr said, “We found you can’t make a shadow on the floor back there because of all the lights. Some people said it’s a bug on the lens, again I don’t know what the thing is.”

Chief Fred Heim, with the Cascade Police Department, said, “I still can’t tell you what I saw. There was a fuzzy thing on there.”

He added, “He asked me if we investigated stuff like that and I basically told him that he probably should call Ghostbusters.”

The Maid-Rite has been there just more than three years and before it was an empty lot.

Heim said, “I’ve been here in town about eight years but they say there have been quite a few different things that have actually been on that lot over there; a grocery store and there’s been some other things in the area such as funeral homes and the old ambulance garage so, who knows?”
