POLICE: Electronics boxes in trash attract thieves



Published: Sat, December 28, 2013 @ 5:55 a.m.

WARREN

Jeff Cole, officer in charge and public-information officer for the Warren Police Department, says it’s a wise practice to break down boxes before putting them out for trash pickup.

Thieves watch the trash for boxes indicating that a resident has recently received a new electronic device or other sought-after item and may target that home, he said.

“We’re living in a time where break-ins are vast, so protect your valuables,” Cole said.

Lighting around a house is important for discouraging a break-in, he said, adding that timers can also help fool a would-be burglar.
