DICKSON CITY, Penn. (WBRE/WYOU/WJW) — Police in Pennsylvania say they responded to a reported exorcism at a home improvement store.

The incident took place on Monday at a Home Depot in Dickson City. According to officials, people were holding an exorcism for the trees on the lumber aisle.

Dickson City Police responded to a call of “bad behavior” at the store and escorted those involved out of the facility without incident.

The incident was shared in a daily crime report on the police department’s Facebook page, prompting response from several social media users.

“I feel slighted. I wish I could witness an exorcism in the lumber aisle of Home Depot,” wrote one person.

“How does a wood exorcism happen in 2021 and not a single person in Home Depot videoed this for our entertainment? I need answers,” said another.

One woman even said, “Whoever did the exorcism, let’s be friends please.”

Police say that no charges have been filed at this time.

Police respond to report of exorcism at Pennsylvania Home Depot

The exorcism in this case was for trees and it took place in Dickson City at the Commerce Boulevard Home Depot. Dickson City Police responded to a call of “bad behavior” occurring in the lumber aisle.

The police department’s Facebook page stated that police responded for “disorderly people having an exorcism in the lumber isle (sic) for dead trees.”

There’s no indication of what led to the exorcism, but at least one commenter on the Facebook post jokingly tied the incident to the high cost of lumber recently.

“May the price of plywood come down…the name of christ compels you…..” the commenter wrote.

Police escorted the people out of the store without incident. No charges have been filed at this time.

MORGAN COUNTY, Ala. — Head engineer Greg Bodley says inspectors have to take each bridge — big or small, old or new — seriously every time.

"At a minimum you have to do (inspections) every two years," Bodley said, referring to average bridges under Morgan County's control.

As of Thursday afternoon, more than 800 people have signed a Change.org petition calling for UNA Student Government Association President Jake Statom to resign from his position.

The petition explained that Statom shared a post on his Instagram story that was not representative of the entire student body. In the post is a T-shirt with a rainbow and a message that reads, “Born this way? You must be born again."

The petition adds that while Statom is entitled to his personal beliefs, as SGA president, he should lead in a capacity that protects the interests of all students.

Students and members of the LGBTQIA+ community said they feel Statom acted irresponsibly.

"I just remember some friends of mine who are in SGA that he signed an oath saying that he would represent the whole campus and all the students involved in this campus so I feel like as a president, he was kind of letting us down when he posted that,” UNA senior Matt Anderson said.

On Tuesday, Statom posted a video to his Instagram story apologizing for sharing the post, adding that he will commit to educating himself on social inclusion using campus resources. The video was accompanied with the following statement:

Renaud will serve on the board until November 2022.

Pennsylvania police claim they were called to a Home Depot on a report of "disorderly people having an exorcism" in the lumber aisle.

The exorcism was for the dead trees and the would-be wood exorcists were escorted out of the building, according to a now-viral post from the Dickson City Police Department.

The incident was described in only 27 words, part of a long list of the small-town department’s daily log of calls – but the post has drawn attention due its bizarre quality and had been shared more than 550 times as of Thursday.

The so-called "exorcism," which was said to have taken place Monday at 3:26 p.m., had commenters on the PD’s page confused.

One suggested maybe it should have said "having an exercise."

"THE POWER DRILL OF CHRIST COMPELS YOU," wrote another.

"How does a wood exorcism happen in 2021 and not a single person in Home Depot videoed this for our entertainment. I need answers," one commenter said.

There were two people who took part in the exorcism, or whatever it was – and neither was charged, WTSP reported.
