For weeks, customers of a grocery store in the small town of Carstairs, Alberta, have been plagued by a mysterious something that has hindered them from driving their cars.
CBC News reports that several people who have used the parking lot of the town’s Westview Co-op have reported their key fobs stopped working or their cars wont start. Additionally, some car alarms have gone off for seemingly no reason.
The Canadian news outlet spoke to Laura Strate, who works at a dollar store across the street from the grocery store. Strate has recently sold batteries to several people who came to her store trying to fix their key fobs, before realizing a new battery does not fix the issue. “It’s just bizarre. People are actually scared to go to the co-op now because they don’t know if their cars are going to start,” Strate said. “We joke around here in Carstairs, ‘Yeah, put your tin foil hats on.’”
