Burglary prevention tips

Burglary prevention tips

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) -- Lots of people travel this time of year, leaving their homes vulnerable to thieves. How can you keep from becoming a victim?

According to the Garland County Sheriff's Department, the key is to make your home look occupied even if no one is home. They offer the following tips to discourage would-be robbers from making off with your valuables.

  • Leave lights on when you go out. If you are going to be away for a length of time, connect some lamps to automatic timers to turn them on in the evening and off during the day. When leaving on trips, leave a light on in the bathroom. In the bedroom, attach a lamp and radio to a 24-hour electric timer set to go on at dusk and off at your bedtime.
  • Leave a radio on an all-talk show station and a little louder than normal. The conversation might lead an offender to believe the home is occupied.
  • Close bedroom drapes or blinds.
