We're in the midst of the holiday season, and while happiness and cheer is generally the topic for this time, it isn't always the case. Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettlekamp said this is also a time for giving, but some see it as an opportunity to steal. Kettlekamp said it's important, especially during this time, to be cautious when out shopping for gifts because people are trying to break into cars, and others are trying to pickpocket.

Kettlekamp also said when leaving to visit family for vacation, it's important to make it seem like someone is still home to prevent people from breaking in. He said never to post anything on social media going on vacation, or showing off the number of gifts underneath the tree. And it's also important to take extra precautions to make sure no one attempts to break in.

Sheriff Kettlekamp appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
