"I'm sure we probably will get a call or two,” said Hunter.Thieves are sniffing out gifts left in vehicles, and they're lurking for leftovers on the curb from the shiny new gadgets like gaming systems, new TVs, tablets, you name it."Don't make a billboard in front of your house of all the cool new things you got,” Hunter suggested.One thing to remember when you take out that Christmas trash - you should at least break down the boxes, or bag it up and put it in a trash can to conceal those gifts from thieves.Police suggest keeping your home well lit, and double-checking simple precautions like locking doors and windows, and arming your security system when you head out for a holiday celebration.While you take steps to protect your new gifts, you should protect your whereabouts, too. Don't broadcast your holiday plans on social media platforms."This is just one time during the season that they know people are going to have either nice things in their homes or their cars, or new things,” Hunter told FOX19 NOW.
