Video doorbells are a gift and a curse.

My sister has one and I love how they notify when someone is at the door, but for one California family they got a little more than expected from an uninvited guest.

According to Fox News, authorities in California say 33-year-old Roberto Arroyo spent three hours licking a doorbell and relieving himself in a family's front yard.

The home owners Sylvia and Dave Dungan live in Salinas, California and their children awoke to multiple alerts from their surveillance system which notifies them if there is movement near the front door. Upon reviewing footage they saw the man licking their doorbell and urinating in their yard.

Sylvia spoke about the incident,

I thought, boy there’s a lot of traffic. I go, 5:00 in the morning? My son doesn’t get home till 6:00 a.m. well then who the heck is that?

The Dungan’s say they cleaned their doors following the incident. Arroyo is said to have gone to a neighbor's house as well.

The suspect could be charged with two misdemeanor counts for petty theft and prowling.
