Don't Post Pics To Social Media While On Vacation

(Alton, IL) -- It's peak vacation season and that means people are packing their bags, heading out of town, and posting their entire experience on social media websites. But police say that's not the smartest thing to do. Emily Hejna, with the Alton Police Department, says it gives burglars a clear signal that your home has been left unattended.
Hejna also recommends that people take additional steps to protect themselves from being burglarized while they are on vacation. She says people should either stop mail service or have someone pick up their mail, put a few lamps on timers so they kick on automatically each night, and do anything they can to make it look like life at their house is going on as usual.
