The group was reportedly holding an exorcism for the dead trees

DICKSON CITY, Pa. — Out-of-context police logs can always raise some eyebrows and maybe … the dead? In one small Pennsylvania town, that’s exactly what (almost, maybe) happened. 

In a now-viral post, the Dickson City Police Department said its officers were called to a report of “disorderly people having an exorcism” at The Home Depot on Monday. The group was reportedly trying to commune with dead trees in the lumber aisle, according to the report. 

The exorcists were escorted out of the building without further incident, police said. 

Facebook users in the comment section were quick to weigh in, and many wanted more information: 

“Please, may I have a crumb of context and also the body cam footage of the Home Depot,” one person wrote. 

“DCPD, I know you're incredibly busy but please […] I just need a shred, a wood chip if you will, about what in the actual hardware store was going on with that exorcism,” another commenter pleaded.
