• 'Operation Burglar Box' kicks off in Orange County

    Updated:

    ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - In an effort to reduce post-holiday burglaries, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and Orlando Recycling have implemented “Operation Burglar Box.”

    The program gives residents an opportunity to discard boxes for expensive items in a place other than in the garbage in front of their home.

    “These gifts often come in large cardboard boxes and when left curbside for trash pickup, it can signal to a criminal what’s inside your house,” the OCSO said on its Facebook page.

    Cardboard boxes can be taken to the following locations for drop off:

    • Sector 1 Substation - 1111 N Rock Springs Road, Apopka
    • Sector 2 Substation -11000 Lake Underhill Road Orlando
    • St. Luke's Methodist Church - 4851 South Apopka Vineland Road Orlando
    • Goodwill Industries -7915 South Orange Blosson Trail Orlando
    • Winn-Dixie - 11957 S. Apopka Vineland Road, Orlando
