How can I prevent theft of newly purchased items?

Don't advertise expensive purchases

When purchasing expensive electronics, appliance, etc, that come in boxes, be *sure* to break-down (flatten) the boxes they come in before placing out front for 'pick-up'. Otherwise, we will only be alerting thieves that we have something inside for them to steal! Now you know why those strange cars drive by on 'trash-pick-up' times!
