Keep the thieves guessing after Christmas. That’s the message from the Texarkana, Texas Police Department.
You may have gotten some really cool stuff for Christmas. However, authorities say keeping the thieves guessing is the way to go. Don’t let the world know what is new in your home.
The Texarkana, Texas Police Department has some good advice.
They say all those empty boxes that you put out with your trash is an advertisement to everyone. It tells them exactly what you received for Christmas. Unfortunately that includes the criminals as well.
Authorities advise to break those boxes down or even cut them into small pieces. It would be great if what is left could completely fit inside your trash can.
Texas side police say, “Let’s keep the bad guys in the dark about what’s in our houses.”
It is definitely a good idea to be discrete about anything new you purchase anytime of the year. But especially during the holiday’s when thieves are looking for an easy target.
Remember as always to lock your house up at night or when you are not home. The same goes for your vehicles. It’s also a good idea to keep merchandise and anything that might attract a thief out of plain sight.
These criminals are looking for easy targets. They will probably pass you by if you take these measures.
Happy New Year.
