There are a variety of reasons why people might install hidden cameras in their homes. Some people may use them for security purposes, to monitor their home and deter burglars or intruders. Others may use them to keep an eye on their children or elderly family members, or to monitor their pets while they’re away from home while some use them when something awkward is happening in their homes.
In this case, a homeowner wanted to find out why groceries were disappearing and decided to set up a hidden camera. He got the shock of his life after reviewing what was caught on tape.
Joe Cummings confronted his girlfriend when he noticed food he wasn’t eating kept going missing.
But after his partner denied it, the bemused bloke set up a hidden camera in his kitchen to find out the truth.
And it was utterly creepy.
Night-vision footage shows a woman drop down from a hard-to-reach cupboard above a door.
She carefully places her feet on a nearby table before quietly stepping onto a stool and then down to the floor.
The intruder then walks over to Joe’s sink and urinates in it before opening his fridge and raiding it for food and drinks.
She then appears to sit on his sofa to watch television before hitting the fridge for further snacks and returning to her hideaway hole.
Joe called the police, and the woman was arrested. It was later discovered that she had been living in the cupboard for two weeks.
“I have no idea how she got in there. The only way in is through the window as I am on the top floor and there is a fire escape,” wrote Joe on YouTube.
“The police think she was probably coming in to rob me when I was gone and decided to stay in the crawl space.
“Supposedly this isn’t the first time the cops have come across something like this.”
The video has over 14 million hits on YouTube.
The viewers were astounded by what they saw.
“This is why you keep a dog,” wrote one user.
Another person commented: “She drank out of the juice carton. That’s so gross.”
A third added: “This is horrifyingly creepy.”
