KUSA - Police warn your garbage could make you a target for thieves, so it is important to be careful about what you throw in the trash, especially during the holidays.
Tossing electronic boxes and bags in the garbage gives burglars an idea of what you have inside of your home.
It is important to break down the electronic boxes or recycle them yourself. Another option is putting the trash out in dark colored bags so you cannot tell what is inside.
