Beware: Empty boxes after Christmas entice burglars

To avoid leaving your empty gift boxes that were once filled with televisions, laptops and other valuable items at the end of your drive showing potential burglars what’s inside your home, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office and Waste Pro USA are working together to help you safely dispose of these boxes.
