Police in Espanola, New Mexico are trying to figure out what blurry, translucent, ghostly figure was caught on camera Saturday night in a locked portion of their station.

The video shows a figure walking through a chain link fence and walking back out.
“It walks through the old transport cages,” said police detective Solomon Romero. “There’s not a way for it to get through, but it walks through that,” Romero said via ABC News.
Officer Karl Romero was on duty that night and says he thought it was a moth at first.
“At first, I thought it was a fly or moth. Then, I saw the legs … and it was a human,” he said. “But not a real human. No – a ghost.”
Romero told his supervisors what he saw and they say there’s no way to get through that area without opening gates, of which would sound an alarm if it wasn’t an officer opening it.
The video defies logic but some say they’ve seen a ghostly figure around the station for years but never had the opportunity to see it on camera. They say their station is not built on a burial ground, nor has anyone died in the building…so who could it be?
“A lot of officers have seen certain things,” said Karl Romero. “Some officers have felt someone breathing down their necks as they’re working in the briefing room.”
Some officers now say they believe in ghosts. “I do believe it was something,” said Solomon Romero. “It was hard to say but I do believe in ghosts.”
