Holiday trash could lure burglars to your home

BEAUMONT-BY: LESLIE RANGEL


While your family enjoys their Christmas presents inside, outside your wrapping paper and trash could be giving clues to what's inside your home.


Officer James Martin for the Beaumont Police Department, he says it's important to keep an eye out for burglaries before they begin.


"I did see big screen TV boxes outside, furniture boxes, boxes you know from quite high end stores, I was going wow!" Officer Martin said.


Block after block, boxes of Christmas presents lined the streets.


"Goes back to the old saying, one man's trash is another man's treasure." Officer Martin Says.


Police say the best way to avoid burglars is to wrap things in dark, black plastic bags.


They say it's important to call police if you see a suspicious person or car in your neighborhood.


"Don't take it for granted, let us come, at least get a license plate number." Officer Martin says.
