This is the season for crooks to cash in, so here's some advice if you're planning on going out of town for the holidays.
- Make sure you deadbolt all doors and lock your windows
- Stop your mail and paper delivery
- If you have a neighbor that you trust, ask them to pick up your paper and mail
- Leave an interior light on so that burglars think you're home
- Be sure to close your blinds and curtains
- Leave a car parked in your driveway
- Turn off the power to your garage door opener
