WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. - Wheat Ridge police said they have a true mystery on their hands.

Investigators received dozens of reports of a loud “boom” happening overnight.

Neighbors said the noise, which some describe as an explosion or a gunshot, only happens once around 3 a.m. typically over the weekend but has been occurring for months now.

“I was dead asleep and ‘What was that?’ and then I’m back asleep. Now it seems like even more of a mystery,” said Sara Anthony of Wheat Ridge. “You can hear it a ways away, but it’s loud enough to wake me up.”

Police saif they do not know where the noise is coming from. Witnesses reported it online, but have not called 911 when it happens, so there is not a good record of when it occurs.

The noise, some speculate, could be a malfunctioning electrical transformer, or a homeowner firing a gun. Some neighbors sais they worry the noise is something not so easily explained.
