THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -  As some of you begin your holiday shopping, police want to make sure your new items are safe.

The Thomasville Police Department says it's important to stay alert during this holiday season. They say it's very common for thieves to break into cars while folks are out shopping.

"Thieves walk around, they try to find vehicles that are unlocked. Some of them are unlocked, sometimes they'll crash into windows to get those things. So, for safety reasons, try to lock your merchandise inside your trunk," said Major Wade Glover of the Thomasville Police Department.

Major Glover also warns shoppers not to carry a large amount of cash in your wallet or purse while you're out looking for deals.
