Authorities in the South Carolina city of Union arrested a group of  self-described ghost hunters for allegedly breaking into a school to  perform an unauthorized investigation.

Cops say that they sensed something was awry at the Sims Middle School  early Saturday morning around 4 AM, when they spotted a jeep  inexplicably parked at the back of the old building.

Their suspicions where confirmed when they entered the school and discovered two men and three women hiding in one of the rooms.

When asked what they were doing at the property, the group claimed that  they had been told that the building was haunted and, thus, they were  hunting for ghosts.
