(WXIA)- It’s a scene almost straight out of “Christmas Vacation,” only it’s a very real nightmare for one Atlanta, Georgia family.

Kari and Dustin Drees purchased their first home last month in Buckhead, and a week later they left for a week-long vacation to visit family for Christmas.

Then something weird started to happen.

Kari says their home alarms began going off. The police came and didn’t find anything wrong – the doors were still locked, no windows were broken. Everything in order.

“We thought there was just a problem with the software,” she told 11Alive’s Joe Henke.

Then they came back from their Christmas vacation, after taking a red-eye flight from California and getting home at 5:30 in the morning.
