Santa won’t be the only one making a list and checking it twice this season, as local law enforcement officials warn residents to be extra-vigilant against burglars and other criminals looking to cash in on the holiday.
According to officials with the Big Spring Police Department, the number of reports of burglary of a habitation increase during the holiday season, as criminals look to fill their stockings with other people’s gifts.
