Effingham Co. Sheriff's Office offers reminders for safe holidays

Posted: Updated:
EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

Christmas is a special time, but the Effingham County Sheriff's Office wants to remind everyone to be safe for a happy and stress free holiday season.

At this time of year, thieves aren't just scoping out houses; they're also looking in the trash.

"Empty boxes are a billboard to thieves advertising what is inside your home," said Sheriff's spokesman David Ehsanipoor. "The best way to get rid of holiday boxes is to drop them off at a recycling center. If recycling is not an option, conceal your boxes as best you can. Break them down and rip them up before putting them in the trash."

If you see any suspicious activity, please contact your local law enforcement agency.
