An Idaho home builder recently snagged an alleged thief with a Ring.
CBH Homes' North Ada sales office in Meridian, Idaho was broken into on Thursday, January 24th around 7am. The builder recently installed Video Ring Doorbells throughout it offices to help provide security and reassurance to the sales team.
The alleged thief approached the front door, rang the Ring Doorbell, then continued to cover the camera. The Ring Video recorded his actions and caught his face on the camera. The thief then proceeded to break in the back door and stole unspecified items until he was deterred by the home's alarm system.
CBH Homes posted the Ring Doorbell video on the Ring App and on Facebook asking for any information identifying the man. Within a few hours, 55 people shared the post, which reached more than 8,000 people. CBH Homes quickly received a direct message on Facebook identifying the man in the video.
"We don't have problems often with break-ins, but it's a top priority for us to keep our team safe. The Ring is a great option to capture people and help deter burglars from thinking about breaking in." said, Ronda Conger, vp of CBH Homes.
CBH Homes is celebrating the capture by offering a Video Ring Doorbell to all buyers who purchase a home in February. Said Conger, "We love this community, we love our buyers, and we love RING. It was an easy decision to spread the love, and our thanks, this February with the Ring Video Doorbell."
