There were an estimated 748,841 vehicle thefts in the United States in 2018, or about 229 per 100,000 Americans. The vehicles stolen were worth, according to the FBI, an estimated total of over $6 billion.

Compared to 2017, the vehicles stolen last year represent a 3.1% decrease from the previous year, but a 9.0% increase compared to 2014.

The National Insurance Crime Bureau, a not-for-profit anti-fraud organization for insurance companies, produced 2018 vehicle theft rates at the metropolitan level per 100,000 people, using data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the FBI’s National Crime Information Center.

These are the 40 U.S. metropolitan areas with vehicle theft rates greater than 400 per 100,000 people.

The 40 metropolitan areas on this list are highly concentrated in just a few states. By far, the most highly represented state is California, which has 15 metro areas on this list.
