After you open all your Christmas gifts, be careful throwing out those empty boxes, especially for big-ticket items. Putting them out to the curb can tip off thieves on what hot new toy Santa brought you.

xboxAfter you open all your Christmas gifts, be careful throwing out those empty boxes, especially for big-ticket items. Putting them out to the curb can tip off thieves on what hot new toy Santa brought you.

The Brigantine Police Department warns that this time of year, thieves aren’t just scoping your house; they’re also looking in your trash.
“Empty boxes are a billboard to thieves advertising what is inside your home,” said Brigantine police Chief Timothy J. Reed. “The best way to get rid of holiday boxes is to drop them off at a recycling center.”
“If recycling is not an option, conceal your boxes as best you can,” Chief Reed added. “Break them down and rip them up before putting them in the trash.”.
