LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) –
Over the years, Lubbock Police have shared many tips about how burglars know to target your home during Spring Break.
They look for piled up mail and empty driveways in front of quiet homes, so police say it may be best to temporarily stop your mail and newspaper delivery and make sure not to post that you are gone on social media.
You can even buy inexpensive timers for lamps to make it appear as if someone is at your home at all times.
Police advise people to record serial numbers from electronics and have photographs of your valuables, for recovery and insurance purposes.
They recommend asking a neighbor to watch your home while you’re away, but if you don’t have one you can trust, they have a year-round house watch program where you can put in a request to have your home watched while you’re gone.
