TYLER (KYTX) -It's that time of year when thieves are looking for presents to put under their own Christmas trees without paying the price.
That's why Tyler Community Resource Officer James McCraw is spending the month of December handing out bright orange report cards. Just like in school, you can pass or fail.
"You've got something in the back of this particular vehicle, you've got a box that might contain shoes, it might contain who knows what," said Officer McCraw as he looked into the back of an SUV.
Officer McCraw is reminding people in a unique way to keep any valuable items out of sight.
Criminals use this time of year to prey on those of us, who are so caught up in shopping, we forget some very simple, everyday things.
