Holiday Trash a Target for Burglars?


All your holiday trash is going into garbage cans and out to the curb, but be careful. Thieves could be keeping an eye on what you set out for the trash collectors.

Many times people make it easy for burglars to figure out which homes to target by leaving boxes that identify gifts in plain view.

To avoid becoming a target, officials suggest breaking down boxes and putting them in dark bags or inside a trash can.

Another tip is to keep trash inside your garage until right before your garbage pick-up.
