Protecting your gifts after shopping


> it's the time of year where people are shopping for their loved ones for the holidays.> but it's also the time of year where thieves can get ahold of your gifts when you're not around.

Kapp-kvew's kaitlin knapp is live with some tips on how to keep your items safe while shopping.

> carissa and jason... like many other shoppers, you want to get your gifts all in one trip.

That means going to several stores and putting everything in your car.

But police say, your bags are a crime of opportunity.

Thieves tend to target cars that are unlocked.

Police say to always lock your door -- making it harder for a criminal to nab your stuff.

If you can, put your items in your trunk and out of sight.

Now if you don't have a trunk, cover up your bags.

Use a jacket, towel or anything else you can find.


Aaron clem/kennewick police department "we may see an increase in smashed windows if there's a lot of valuables in the car that they can see.

You know, it's risk versus reward.

It's more risky for them to break out a window, but if they can steal several things that are valuable, it might be worth it to them to do that.") while it might be a pain, you can also bring your bags home after each shopping trip.

Clem adds that you should bring them inside -- don't leave them in your car.

> back out here live... volunteers with the kennewick police department will actually be patrolling the retail areas of the city.

They'll be watching for any suspicious people -- possibly prowling around cars.

The volunteers will be doing this until the end of the month.
