Central area (Downtown, Midtown, East Sac, and Campus area) – for the past month we have seen a significant spike in stolen vehicles. The stats show that 90s era Hondas (Accord and Civic), are the stolen vehicle of choice. We (SPD) are aware of this rise and are actively working several different strategies to curtail the thefts. Please do not leave anything valuable in your car. Secondly, if possible garage your vehicle, if garaging your vehicle is not an option try and park in a well lit area or in your driveway. A motion sensor light in your driveway is also a great deterrent, not only for auto thefts but for burglaries as well.
