Mysterious loud noise baffles residents, police
At approximately midnight around Gentilly Mobile Home Park, a mysterious loud bang was heard.
Phone calls to The Plainsman office suggested that the bang was heard over a far larger radius than Gentilly Park.
Residents around the area do not seem to believe the sound was a gunshot or fireworks, as the sound was described as far too loud.
Capt. Tom Stofer of the Auburn Police Department said the department received a call about the noise, but after sending officers out to the area could not find a source or evidence of damage.
"We were really never able to indicate where the sound came from," Stofer said. "As far as we know, nothing was reported afterward as being damaged."
Stofer could not offer any possibilities of what caused the sound.
"The source of the noise or sound is really unknown at this time," Stofer said.
More information will be released as it becomes available.
