CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is urging West Virginians to be diligent in protecting their homes while they are away for summer vacations.

Morrisey says to be cautious about sharing details or pictures on social media sites until the trip is over. He says would-be burglars could use that information to break into homes.

Other tips for keeping homes safe while on vacation include not broadcasting plans on voicemail or email and having a neighbor or friend keep an eye on things.

All doors and windows should be locked before leaving, lock away valuables and use light timers to create the appearance that someone is home.
