Look out for thieves during the holidays
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It's that time of year when you should be on the lookout for thieves with Christmas approaching us.
Shoppers are getting ready to give the perfect Christmas gifts, but some are worried about people stealing gifts from them.
Officials said thieves sit in their car and watch for people to bring packages to their car and then go back inside a store.
Make sure you hide those shopping bags so thieves can't see them from outside your vehicle.
Your house can be vulnerable too. Don't allow the burglars know what you bought by your trash.
Officials said 80 percent of home burglaries involve someone you have trusted such as a friend or family member, or someone who has worked at your home.
This turns a giving holiday into a greedy one.
