Deputies: dump your Christmas trash in burglary boxes

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla.- Law enforcement across central Florida are encouraging people to use Burglary Boxes to recycle boxes from big, expensive Christmas gifts like TVs.
Orange County sheriff’s deputies say normally there is an increase in home burglaries during the holiday season which is why they’ve set-up eight burglary boxes to help homeowners reduce the potential of a break-in.
Deputies say leaving big boxes on the curb lets burglars know what you have inside your home. They say some burglars select potential homes to burglarize based on what is on the curb.
