SALINAS, Calif.-- Doorbell cameras allow you to see your visitors more clearly but as one California family found out, there are some things that just cannot be unseen.

Some residents in Salinas are reeling after a man was caught on camera licking a homeowner's doorbell

Why would anyone do this? Well, it is reminiscent of Adam Sandler's intercom shenanigans in Happy Gilmore. But police say this is no laughing matter

They say the suspect spent three hours licking the doorbell and milling around the family's yard.

A security camera captured the incident and notified the owners, who were out of town. Authorities say the footage helped them identify the suspect. They are still looking for the man, but say he could face a number of charges.
