GOLDEN, Colo. -- The scariest call of the week, according to the Golden Police Department, happened at its headquarters when officers located "a suspicious party" hanging out in the hallway.

It turned out to be a black widow spider, but further investigation found a group of them.

Decked out in full riot gear, officer Emily Carreno went in and bravely exterminated the invaders.

“For the safety of all of us, we are not posting pictures of the invaders,” the police department wrote on its Facebook page.

Another spider was found in the locker room, but it managed to get away.
