2 Employees Reprimanded Over 'Ghost Camera'

Posted: Updated:

BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - Two Butte-Silver Bow County employees have been reprimanded after a motion-activated camera was installed in a little-used room in the health department in the hopes of capturing paranormal activity.
    
Chief Executive Matt Vincent tells The Montana Standard (http://bit.ly/1csYzzC ) that an internal investigation found that no crimes had been committed.
    
A memo about the investigation from Interim Human Resources Director Penny McElroy says a health department employee thought it would be fun to have the Butte Paranormal Investigative Team see if there was any paranormal activity in the building. Members of the paranormal group say they forgot it when they left.
    
An employee who noticed the camera on Aug. 21 was concerned that someone was spying on employees and turned the camera over to police.
