EL PASO - The lights and decorations outside of your home are meant to spread holiday cheer to neighbors, but thieves may be eying them as well.

According to the El Paso Police Department, there have been some cases were decorations were stolen from outside of homes. That's why the department is advising homeowners to use anchors, or take down the decorations at night.

"Some of those can create a lot of work, but if you want to protect your stuff, you'll go through that," Spokesman Darrel Petry said.

Petry also says if you're leaving your home, close the blinds or shutters so would-be thieves cannot see presents under the tree.
