#doorbelllicker We had just installed our Ring doorbell just less than a month ago. It paid off. Our home is the doorbell that was featured on #LivePD, 1/05/19 episode. So funny. It was great. Should I remove my sign (over perp's right shoulder)? I'm embarrassed for his family. pic.twitter.com/JKnYFd6i3F— Sylvia Dungan (@jaycat13) January 6, 2019
