ANOTHER DOORBELL LICKER: Another man has been caught on a Ring doorbell camera licking a doorbell, this time at a home in Florida. In January, a Ring doorbell camera captured a California man licking a doorbell for three hours, according to the homeowner. pic.twitter.com/CVEyKptXah

It seems like “man licks doorbell” is becoming a new genre of crime. Home surveillance video out of Florida shows a stranger licking the doorbell. Available reporting shows that this happened in Lake Worth, Florida.
The camera is positioned right where the man seems to make contact, so it provide a very clear–too clear–view of the individual’s nose and facial hair. We saw it, and now you have to as well. The individual is seen holding and intermittently pointing at what seems to be a stack of magazines, or something like them.
Mind you, this is completely unrelated to another incident in Salinas, California. Surveillance footage caught a man licking a doorbell for three hours. That wasn’t a typo. He really liked that doorbell.
The footage contains a stamp for the site Ring.com, however. In a post dated January 24, 2019, someone identified the licker by his first name, and said he is homeless.
“He’s asked my husband for cigarettes a few times but now he’s coming around way to [sic] much,” this person wrote. This individual said they told the police about it. Law&Crime reached out to local law enforcement for more information.
