I’m Scared!

I took this photo from my bedroom window. Apparently, we have people driving by our house, usually workers and people living on our street. Not unusual. Our street is too narrow and not meant for parking cars. However, it’s very unusual when they park in the street in front of our house and drive around the circle of our street to return and park again. Our contractor mentioned it to my husband and asked if we knew them. He saw a white car yesterday and today parked in front of our house. Our son came to visit today just as hubs and I were returning from our walk, and asked us who just drove off from in front of our house as he pulled into our driveway. He saw a white car. We have no idea! The car is gone by the time we look. We don’t have the license plate number, but hubs just called the police. They will make periodic drives by our house. Our doors are locked and the alarm is on, and I’m scared.

Good evening.That is kind of spooky and why they are doing this.A good idea to let the police know about this. You have the police checking on this.You should feel some relief.Take a deep breath and relax.

Fortunately, the police are in the center of town nearby. They are great at things like this, but we have no idea how long this has been going on.

I don't blame you @DianneN I hope it turns out that either they know you or were simply confused about who they thought you might be.

I would be scared too. It does sound as though they are casing out the joint. Make sure you don't leave yourself vulnerable.

That's what my son thought, too. And the contractor entered our basement yesterday to tell my husband about that car. I found out earlier. I'm not going walking until something is done about this situation. The why and who is what gets to me.

One of the reasons I love my country. We are so overpopulated that somebody or the other would notice or some CCTV or the other would record. Definitely safer than your world.

That is scary, I'd be alerted by this, also. Especially with the same car driving past more than one time! If there was a for sale sign, that would be understandable I'm thankful the police have been alerted, to this unusual occurrence. stay safe

We saw the car parked here again first thing this morning, but by the time the police arrived, it was gone. At least we know it's a white Grand Cherokee Jeep now. I have no idea how long it was parked there or why it took off. The deck workers, our neighbors, and we are keeping our eyes opened. We are having a President party on our lawn this afternoon with our son and his girlfriend, so we can watch the road without any trouble.

We would need many, many cameras. The car was here again first thing this morning. By the time the police arrived, it was gone. At least we can identify the make and model of the car now. Our neighbors are keeping their eyes opened, the police will continue to do a drive by, and my neck is twisting off between looking out the window and watching the votes come in.

@DianneN A camera to monitor the road would be enough to get the plate of the car. One of our neighbors had placed several cameras that the police asked to remove because they violated the privacy of the others.

@LadyDuck Our house is too far from the road and the angle wouldn't allow for getting the plate. It looks like I won't need to move to Switzerland!

I have it planned how we can sneak up behind the car through the front woods to get a license plate number, but I am still scared. Thank goodness the workers noticed when they kept going to their truck to get tools and whatever. That's why the contractor came into my basement, yesterday. He wanted to tell my husband.

First, the view is amazing! Was it the first time it happened? It was so unusual indeed! Your husband did the right thing but I wish it would not happen again. Take care Miss D! It sounds unusual also if this happens in the rich community.

Thank you, Simone. It first was noticed by our contractor on Wednesday. He alerted my husband. We saw it first thing this morning, but by the time the police arrived, it was gone. Now our entire neighborhood is on alert for that car. It's an SUV. I told the police the make and model this morning.

@DianneN I hope it will not return. But don't you have security personnel that stays in the entrance of your place? Here, gated communities have security personnel and one cannot enter if you don't belong there

@DianneN Did you take a photo of it or video it secretly? It is a good and valid evidence especially if you get its plate number of the car.

@Nakitakona I have my camera ready, but it's impossible to get the license plate number without getting close to the car. I am afraid of the nut who is behind the wheel. The police told us not to get close or approach him.

Don't you have CCTV cameras? Or CCTVs on the way to your home? If you do, you can request for recording, and confirm from the contractor, and forward it to the police.
