Police are warning people that what you toss into garbage cans could attract thieves.  Authorities say big boxes with brand names on them are a way for thieves to know what new items you got this Christmas.  Be sure to break down and cut up boxes or tie boxes together with the labels facing each other.  Finally, take garbage out on garbage day, not days earlier, to limit who sees your garbage.
