Thief suspect pins blame on ‘ghost’

A man suspected of theft has blamed a ghost for the crimes.

Joseph Hughes from Mount Gilead, Ohio was accused of stealing a generator, a welder and 12 air conditioning units from the sheriff’s office in Morrow County.

The stolen items were found in the ex-police officer’s basement.

Hughes told the court: "It’s going to sound kind of ridiculous, but we believed that there was some paranormal presence in the basement.

"It sounds kind of ridiculous, but there was evidence to support it."

The prosecutor responded: "I’ve been practising since 1983, and I can say that’s the first time I’ve heard of paranormal activity in the course of a trial."

Hughes was found guilty of 18 charges.
