September 30, 2021 -- Virginia Beach: The Martinez family is Black and thought they had found their dream home.
Living there has become a nightmare.
"The minute we found this home, I loved it," Jannique Martinez told CNN. "It was everything I envisioned for my family and for raising my kids in a nice, quiet neighborhood."
"We noticed a little erratic behavior like these blinking lights that are on a sensor. When my family or any other family leaves or returns to their homes, they all start to blink," Martinez said. "When the sensors are activated, loud music begins to play. He switches the music based on the family that is activating the music."
The Virginia Police Department told CNN although the activity is appalling, is not criminally actionable.
