Tips for A Theft-Free Holiday

The gifts are opened, the trash has been taken out. But is taking the trash out the best idea?? Sargeant Joe Watts of the Indiana State Police says that those empty boxes can attract uninvited house guests. Those boxes let others know exactly what was received for Christmas and makes you a target for theft. Watts has some simple suggestions to keep those new electronics in your home where they belong: install deadbolts on all doors, make sure all of the windows are locked, try to keep curtains or blinds closed, and consider taking boxes to a local recycling center. You can also take pictures of all items and the serial numbers, that way in case a theft does happen the items can be returned to you if they are located.
