A Honda Accord may have topped the list for the most-stolen vehicle in the nation, but in Alabama, pickup trucks are more likely to be stolen.
A 1997 full-size Chevrolet pickup truck was the most-stolen vehicle in Alabama during 2011, followed by a 2000 Ford pickup truck. The 1996 Honda Accord came in third.
Nationally, the 1994 Honda Accord made the number one spot on the list, followed by a 1998 Honda Civic in second place and 2006 full size Ford Pickup in third.
The National Insurance Crime Bureau released these statistics in their annual Hot Wheels report, which is available online at www.nicb.org. This report takes into account all vehicle thefts reported to a law enforcement agency nationwide.
The report says on a national level, vehicle thefts are at the lowest they've been since 1967. The preliminary crime statistics from the FBI show a 3.3 percent reduction in vehicle thefts in 2011 compared to the number in 2010.
The CEO of NICB says there may be a reason later models are showing up on the most-stolen list.
"While overall thefts continue to decline, we are seeing a trend toward increases in the thefts of late model vehicles − ones that are theoretically harder to steal due to sophisticated key code technology," NICB president and CEO Joe Wehrle said in a release.
He described the typical vehicle thief as a professional criminal who makes a replacement key after figuring out a vehicle's key code.
"We are aware of nearly 300 thefts that took place in the first three months of this year in which we believe replacement keys using illegally obtained key codes were used to steal the vehicle," Wehrle said.
"We are working closely with our member companies, law enforcement, and the vehicle manufacturers to track these illegal key code transactions and stop the thefts or recover the stolen vehicles before they can be resold here or shipped out of the country to be sold overseas," Wehrle added.
Here's the top 10 stolen vehicles in Alabama from 2011:
1. 1997 full-size Chevrolet pickups
2. 2000 full-size Ford pickup trucks
