The Barretts, who live in Bakersfield, California had just returned home from vacation. But all was not as they had left it. In fact, there in the driveway was a smashed potted plant, alongside a hat. It was undoubtedly a strange scenario to return to – and one with seemingly no explanation.
That is, until they checked out their home security system. Indeed, thanks to the precautionary measures many homeowners take nowadays, the Barretts managed to capture the entire incident on film. Yes, the couple had installed CCTV cameras looking out over their driveway. And they’re no doubt glad they did.
At first, the footage of that night just shows a clear driveway, with the Barretts away on vacation. At face value, then, there’s nothing untoward going on. But soon, a car sails past, getting slower and slower, until it comes to a stop outside the Barretts’ home. The driver can then be seen shutting off the engine and climbing out of her car.
