Beware of Throwing Away Christmas Gift Boxes

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- The holiday season can be one of the busiest for thieves and we maybe helping them steal our stuff.

Now that most of us have opened all those gifts police say we should be careful where we put the trash that comes with them. Officers say we should never place our left over big screen TV boxes and other evidence of expensive toys next to the curb saying were basically advertising what's inside our house. Instead we're told to stuff the garbage in cans and throw things away at different times to keep thieves away.
