FLORENCE, SC (WBTW) – On Sunday a man known as a celebrity ghost hunter on TV was arrested in Florence and charged with two felonies and a misdemeanor.
Booking records from the Florence County Detention Center show that 34-year-old Ryan Buell was taken into custody on Sept. 18 by Florence deputies.
Under the charges online, he is listed as a “detainer” but documents from a magistrate in Centre County, Pennsylvania say he is accused of theft of leased property, receiving stolen property, and theft of services. Records from Florence County show Buell has a Sumter, South Carolina address.
Buell is a paranormal investigator, author and producer who founded the Paranormal Research Society when he was a student at Pennsylvania State University. According to his Twitter account, Buell is the host of the A&E show Paranormal State.
In the last years, fans have complained about Buell cancelling events and failing to return their money. His mother posted an emotional status on Facebook asking fans not to stop “enabling her son” on Tuesday.
” I beg you all – if you are a TRUE fan – PLEASE stop enabling his situation by sending money, buying tickets to events that may never occur, buying merchandise/phone calls you may never get, paying money to watch him on Twitch, and giving him offers of shelter,” the post said.
According to Florence County Bookings, Buell is still being held.
