As the Fire Inspector for the City of Montebello, I had access to all buildings in the city, including the Montebello Town Center. Once, while waiting to meet up with Terry, the Director of Security at the Mall, I overheard him mention ''the ghost''. He was slightly upset when he realized that that I'd heard the comment, but after noting my avid interest he told that there had been numerous incidents with the Town Center security personnel, including observations of apparitions that were made after hours, when the place was supposedly empty of people.
While doing visual checks of the Mall prior to lockup, there were many instances of a man being sighted standing near the main elevator. When a guard was sent to check, the man was always gone.
Not long after the Mall opened, an electric room was being used as a temporary changing/locker room for the guards. It was close to midnight and one of the guards, ''Eddie'', was changing from his uniform to street clothes when ''he felt someone watching him''. He looked up and saw a ''transparent form peering around a corner, staring at him''. Eddie's coworkers found him, wearing only his boxers, some 300 yards away, outside in the parking lot, shaking and refusing to go back into that power room. ''His eyes were like golf balls'' I was told. This story was told to me by Eddie himself and confirmed by the two guards that dragged him back inside. When Eddie tells the story, the hair on his arm stands up. To this day, the incident still bothers him.
One day, while conducting a routine fire inspection at a shoe store on the second level, I was asked by one of the employees ''if I had heard of anything strange happening inside the mall''. I said ''what do you mean by that?'' She proceeded to tell me that, just the night before, her and her coworker were getting ready to close. They had just completed a window display consisting of 50 or so pairs of shoes and both had walked to the storeroom to put away some shoe boxes. Returning not five minutes later, every shoe in the window that had laces was untied, and the others were turned around backwards. They were both somewhat upset, to say the least.
Terry, the Security Director also told me about an incident involving a janitor. While cleaning one of the men's rooms, the janitor noticed a pair of boots inside one of the stalls. Thinking it occupied, he mopped the floor. When he turned back around, the pair of boots were sitting in front of the sink with no one in them. The janitor took off running and didn't return, even for his paycheck. Terry got the story by telephone.
There were several other stories of mysterious ''shadows'' that would pass in front of various employees, particularly at the toy store on the second level; and from the security guards who were positive that they were being followed at night when patrolling the hallways that gave backdoor access to the various shops, to the point of yelling ''get away from me'' at whatever unseen form was following them.
