Authorities say this time of year burglars go through people’s trash to see what would be inside the home.

One woman we spoke with says her children are all grown up and out of the house, but she never thought her trash could make her vulnerable.

“Oh boy, I never saw in terms of our trash saying what we got and making us available to a burglar,” says Rita Gordanson of Mason City.
