A grocery store in South Australia says paranormal detectives are investigating a ghost who likes flinging Fruit Roll-Ups.
Brompton IGA store owner Norm Hurst says he turned to his surveillance footage after finding a box of the fruit snacks laying in an aisle, about six meters from its original location, after he had locked up shop.
‘The previous owners told me it was haunted,’ Mr Hurst told Adelaide Now. ‘I thought, ‘yeah, whatever.’ But since we’ve owned the place, strange things have happened.’
Mr Hurst watched the CCTV footage and says he was shocked by what he saw.
‘One of the cameras shows the packet of Roll-Ups just arriving on the ground,’ he told the Herald Sun. ‘It has not just slid off, it has been thrown out of the pasta, yet, the Roll-Ups are kept 12 metres away.’
Different angles of the video show no one in the area when the anomaly occurred.
Mr Hurst said the store was entirely empty, closed and just before midnight according to the footage, when it happened.
Some viewers of the video have noted a time jump immediately before the product’s appearance, from precisely 11:27pm to 11:30pm, accusing the video of being edited.
Another noted however that most surveillance cameras are set to record only when they detect movement, explaining the three minute gap in time.
On Thursday night the store reported paranormal detectives arriving to investigate the store.
One paranormal detective, Jessica Pulvirenti, said she watched and evaluated the video and believes it’s genuine seeing no wires or strings attached.
‘I think it’s pretty cool, actually,’ Mr Hurst said.
“It hasn’t done anything nasty,” he said, “the ghost has a sweet tooth.”
