We left several bowls of Halloween candy on our porch on Sunday night because my husband and I were tired and went to bed early. Last night, he was bored so he checked our Ring camera to see, who visited us on Halloween. My husband got about 10 minutes in before going ballistic. Our camera caught one of our neighbors stealing all of our candy. My husband is outraged and plans to speak with her and her teenage children today. He wants to be reimbursed for the candy. He says if we don't get paid than he is going to the police to file a report for theft. Our next door neighbor says we are blowing things out of proportion. Where do you stand on this? Is my husband right?
