While the Christmas and Holiday seasons are seasons for giving, some believe it is the time for taking. In Newburgh, gifts for needy children were stolen from the Salvation Army. Closer to home, the Bedford Police Department reported seven homes were burglarized during Tuesday in the Bedford Village area. New Castle police reported six burglaries and one attempted burglary this month.
With so many presents purchased and sitting in the house and people leaving their houses for church and the homes of relatives, it creates an opportunity for thieves. While celebrating this Christmas, please remember to lock your house and keep your eyes on the homes of your neighbors.
Have a Merry Christmas and hopefully a safe and peaceful one.
