Everyone these days are installing outdoor front porch cameras. In a world where people continue to steal packages right under a homeowner’s nose, who could be blamed for taking extra security precautions?
We’re pretty sure that nobody expected a surveillance camera to capture the habits of this prowler. Instead of attempting to steal anything from the home, he simply spent three LONG hours licking the doorbell over and over again. Say what?!
“I thought I’d seen it all, but this takes the cake,” a neighbor told the media.
Roberto Daniel Arroyo was caught in the act of licking the doorbell continuously, but not attempting to do anything else. The scary part is that the adults of the home weren’t home at the time, but their older children were in the house sleeping!
Thanks to that newly installed outdoor surveillance system, though, the police were able to investigate the case and make an arrest soon after.
“We were pleasantly surprised that the image was so clear, so it didn’t take us long to identify the individual,” the police said.
The camera also caught Arroyo moving an extension cord on the front yard so he could relieve himself without it getting in the way. How considerate!
“You kind of laugh about it afterwards because, technically, he didn’t harm anyone, he didn’t break anything. But it’s definitely odd behavior,” the homeowner said.
Police haven’t arrested Arroyo yet, but say that he could face a misdemeanor charge of petty theft and prowling.
As for the homeowners, they have made sure to clean the doorbell off very thoroughly, with plenty of disinfectant!
