Mischievous little eyes are peeping inside homes and vehicles this shopping season, looking to snatch up brand new clothes, shoes, gadgets and gizmos while the owners are oblivious to what's going on. But local law enforcement, who will be on the trail of these prowlers this week and throughout the holiday season, has ways people can keep their goods safe and prevent being victimized by burglaries.

Good things come to those who wait. And for the Oak Hill Raiders it led their third consecutive win Friday night, knocking off AA North Delta 44-28.
The first quarter opened with a shootout from the opening tip-off as both teams fired off 13 points. North Delta was primarily in a 2-3 zone defensively, forcing the Raiders to take their time and find open looks to the basket. Transfer AJ Jones took control, scoring 11 of the teams 13 points in the first quarter. He finished with 18 in the win.
STARKVILLE â€“ Starkville scored a pair of touchdowns off of two West Point turnovers Friday night, including the game winner in the fourth quarter as the Yellowjackets ended the Green Waveâ€™s run for a third consecutive 5A title, 20-14 in the second round of the MHSAA state playoffs.
Itâ€™s the first time since 2008 West Point (8-5) wonâ€™t be playing for a state title.
The Yellowjackets will travel to Ridgeland next Friday for the North State title. Many had predicted the winner of Starkville and West Point would go on to win the 5A championship.
Oak Hill notched their second win in a row Thursday, 55-43 versus Carroll despite a gritty first half performance defensively.
The first half could be easily described as a shootout, with the Raiders holding on to a four point lead heading into the second. Carroll rebounded with 11 points to cut the deficit to a basket at the break.
The Rebels werenâ€™t exactly getting easy looks, they were just making tough shots and hanging around.
The Raiders looked like a revamped team in the third, outscoring the visitors 20-5 and stretching the lead to 17 points.
