Texans Love Their Trucks and So Do Texas Crooks
Texas is full of pickup trucks. If a major car company makes it, a Texan either owns one or has tested one. But new crime stats from the Texas Department of Public Safety show that pickup trucks are also the top vehicles stolen in the Lone Star State.
The top ten stolen vehicles are as follows:
- Ford Pickup (model not specified)
- Chevy Pickup (model not specified)
- Dodge Pickup (model not specified)
- Honda Civic
- Chevy Tahoe
- Honda Accord
- GMC Pickup (model not specified)
- Chevy Impala
- Toyota Camry
- Ford Taurus
Department of Public Safety officials say vehicle thefts are the single costliest crime in Texas, costing Texans $621 million in 2011.
