Prevent Theft At Your Garage Sale



When having a garage sale beware of customers who may be trying to "make a buck", or more, the easy way.

Police experts suggest these tips when having a garage sale:

1. Have one or more helpers. One person is cashier while others watch for shoplifters.

2. Keep only small amounts of money on hand to make change. Have a family member or friend take larger bills into your house.

3. Be wary of people who try to confuse you by exchanging money back and forth before finally settling on which bill they want to pay with.

4. Have your garage sale only during daylight hours.

5. Lock all doors on your house during sale hours.
