The ghoul hunters were searching the grounds of supposed-haunted house Chambercombe Manor in Devon when they heard a banging noise.
No doubt the group were delighted at the thought of a spooky sighting but when they tracked it down, it was some not-so-creepy crooks!
The burglars were cutting a drain cover off a stolen trailer with a chainsaw but scarpered when they realised they'd been spotted.
Chambercombe Manor is said to be one of Britain's spookiest houses and is believed to be haunted by Lady Jane Grey.
But she certainly wasn't scaring away criminals that night!
