It's that time of year when packages and holiday cards are being sent.
Officials in Douglas County say they are already seeing an increase in mail theft.
Officials say thieves are after gift cards, bank statements, social security numbers and any other items which would lead to stealing your identity or money.
Officials are warning residents not place mail in your mailbox overnight.
Also, if you plan on being out of town, have a trusted family member collect your mail daily.
If you notice anything suspicious, call local law enforcement.
