Philly Voice quoted an unnamed officer about the incident who said, “There were two people hanging out in the lumber department doing their little exorcism thing. Some people at the store started picking up that something was happening that was not necessarily normal. Police were called to the store and they were escorted out of the building…It was a séance type of thing for the dead.”

While the authorities did get involved, Phlly Voice noted those taking part in the exorcism/”séance type of thing” were not charged.
