ESPANOLA, N.M. (KOAT) – Just in time for Halloween, police officers in New Mexico say they got quite a fright when they saw something strange show up on the station’s surveillance camera.
On Saturday, Officer Karl Romero was keeping a close eye on surveillance cameras around the station when he spotted something in the gated area.
Romero says he originally thought the movement was caused by a moth or a bug, but then saw the way it was moving and even something that looked like legs.
Detectives say there is no way in or out of the secured area without the gates opening and an alarm sounding.
As far as they know, the building is not on a burial ground and no inmates have ever died at the police station.
