The new video doorbell recorded him via motion detection. He stood there licking the doorbell with object dedication for a straight 3 hours. The doorbell alerted the family of movement and began recording.
Salinas, California police caught 33-year-old Roberto Daniel Arroyo after they reviewed the video footage from the doorbell.
He was recorded via one of the new automatic video doorbell devices available for around $150 to $300. I myself have one and strongly recommend them for monitoring the home, yard, and package delivery.
