It’s no secret that burglars can target a residence or business based on the belief that a particular location has more desirable property to steal. With that in mind, the SBPD highly recommends that residents do their best to obscure the boxes or packaging of Holiday gifts. When it’s time to throw packaging out make sure it is either in a trash bag or in the case of larger boxes, cut them flat and turn the label sides in, so would-be burglars can’t tell what the box contained. And once again, keep blinds or curtains closed during nighttime hours, so thieves cant look inside of homes and see gifts and packages.

A few simple measures can prevent a burglary.
