Top 10 Metro Areas for Car Thefts
McVey Insurance, CA, Car TheftsThe National Insurance Crime Bureau’s (NICB) “Hot Spots” report examines vehicle theft data obtained from the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) for each of the nation’s metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs). For 2013, the 10 MSAs with the highest vehicle theft rates were:
2013 Ranking Location 2012 Ranking
1 Bakersfield, Calif. 3
2 Fresno, Calif. 2
3 Modesto, Calif. 1
4 San Francisco/Oakland/Hayward, Calif. 6
5 Stockton-Lodi, Calif. 4
6 Redding, Calif. 10
7 Spokane-Spokane Valley, Wash. 9
8 Vallejo-Fairfield, Calif. 8
9 San Jose/Sunnyvale/Santa Clara, Calif. 7
10 Yuba City, Calif. 31
Although California tends to place high in this report, this is the first time that California has held nine of the top 10 spots for MSAs with the highest per capita vehicle theft rates. In 2012, it held eight and in 2011, seven. MSAs are designated by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and often include areas much larger than the cities for which they are named. For example, the Bakersfield, Calif., MSA includes all thefts within the entire county of Kern, not just the city of Bakersfield. Moreover, as a population-based survey, an area with a much smaller population and a moderate number of thefts can—and often does—have a higher theft rate than an area with a much more significant vehicle theft problem and a larger population to absorb it. But, according to NICB,  there is also some good news. In 2012, a small increase in vehicle thefts ended a consecutive eight-year run of decreasing thefts. However, the 2013 NICB data shows thefts are once again on the decline. This is in line with preliminary 2013 FBI vehicle theft data—released in February–that shows a 3.2 percent decrease in vehicle thefts for the first half of 2013. If the preliminary FBI data holds when the final 2013 vehicle theft figures are released, then there is a good chance that the national total will be close to what it was back in 1967.
