Home Depot Lumber Aisle Exorcism in Pennsylvania

Getty Home Depot lumber aisle was the site of an exorcism.

A Home Depot lumber aisle exorcism was reported by police in Dickson City, Pennsylvania.

Wait, what?

That’s what the police report says.

The 911 call history for Dickson City Police reads “3:26 p.m. Commerce Blvd. @ Home Depot for disorderly people having an exorcism in the lumber isle (sic) for the dead trees. They were escorted out of the building.”

This was surrounded on the history sheet by other more mundane police calls, such as an alarm at Chuck E Cheese, traffic stops, and an intoxicated person lying on steps. The exorcism occurred in Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania. Too bad there’s no video.

Here’s what you need to know:

“Wait … Why did you stop it? Now we got a possessed individual running loose?!” a person responded on the police comment thread, in apparent jest.

People had fun with the report on social media. Here are some of the comments:

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

“I would 100% watch a horror movie about demonic lumber.”

“I feel slighted. I wish I could witness an exorcism in the lumber aisle of Home Depot. LOL.”

“I usually wait until I get the lumber home before the ceremony, I don’t want anyone stealing my system for exorcism.”

“These trees are clean… from the book of poltergeist which too had to be exorcised before reading.”

“The power of pine compels you!!!”

“Were they escorted out before or after they finished? If before, y’all be real thoughtful of buying any of that demon wood.”
