The holidays are a time when thieves and con artists are frequently on the prowl. Here are some tips from the Newton County Sheriff’s Office to help keep your home, your car, your possessions, and your family safe.
• Plan your trips. Instead of one big shopping trip, try several small ones. This will cut down on the amount of money you carry, the packages you’ll be encumbered with, and it will make your shopping less stressful.
Above all, if you are victimized, report it to sheriff’s office immediately.
