SAVANNAH, GA ( December 22, 2011 ) Remember to recycle those boxes, criminals will be on the look-out for the best Christmas gifts.


Those fancy boxes stacked in your trash area or yards are billboards to thieves who now know what items are in the house. Even tearing them to pieces and depositing them in your home recycling bins isn’t enough. Thieves are smart enough to look in them. Consider taking them away from your home to get rid of them or store them someplace out of sight for a week or two before discarding. Or, take them to a city pickup center listed here:
