The NICB study explains that certain older model cars and trucks are popular with thieves because of the value of their parts. Parts can often be sold for greater value than what the car itself would bring in.

Locally, the Albany metro area ranked 116th in the nation for auto thefts with 485 in 2008. For a complete listing of the hottest stolen cars and theft prevention tips click here.
