If you’re planning a March Break vacation, make sure you take the right steps to protect your home.

That’s the message from Bancroft O.P.P. Constable Philippe Regamey says there are a number of ways to make sure would-be-thieves still think you’re home.

 Regamey says anyone that owns trail cameras can use them to keep an eye on their home. He also says you should wait until you’re back to post pictures of your trip on social media.
 If you will be hitting the road during March Break, Regamey also reminds you to be patient and take your time to get to where you’re going.
