Police remind of safety day after Christmas

TAMPA, FL (WFLA) – Tampa Police remind to be careful with Christmas trash – large boxes from tech gifts.

In their Facebook Crime Tip TPD officers advise not to advertise to criminals of all the great gifts Santa has given you. Don’t put the empty boxes from TVs, laptops and other expensive gifts to the curb. This may tip off the criminals who may be canvassing neighborhoods the days after Christmas.

It’s better to break them down and put them into the garbage can or in large garbage bags.
