Is the car or truck you own one of the ‘Top Ten Most Stolen Vehicles’ in Texas for 2013?

The Reduce Auto Theft in Texas (RATT) Vehicle Crimes Awareness Task Force at Denton Police Department has determined the top ranking of pickups among stolen vehicles after reviewing the 2013 MVT19 reports released by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS).

Based on the reports,  pickup trucks again topped the list of most common theft targets in 2013.

Here is the list of the 10  most stolen passenger vehicles:

1) Ford Pickup 

2) Chevrolet Pickup 

3) Dodge Pickup 

4) Chevrolet Tahoe 

5) Honda Civic   

6) Honda Accord        

7) GMC Pickup  

8) Chevrolet Impala  

9) Toyota Camry  

10) Nissan Altima

Vehicles are stolen for a variety of reasons, and contrary to popular belief, the most stolen vehicles are several years old.  Some are stolen and stripped for parts.  Others are stolen and resold by thieves to unsuspecting buyers.  Many vehicles are stolen for joyriding, for use in committing other crimes, to perpetrate insurance fraud, to burglarize personal items and documentation, or for any number of other illegitimate purposes.  And vehicle theft directly costs Texans more than any other single property crime – over $620 million in 2012. -Denton Police Department

To help prevent your vehicle from being stolen, you should be aware that thieves can be lurking anywhere, and drivers should practice prevention techniques such as hiding contents that may be desirable to a thief, locking vehicle doors, and taking keys.

Did your vehicle make the top 10 list?
