A breakout report details state-by-state thefts, with Ford and Chevy pickup trucks, Honda Civics, Accords and Dodge Caravans topping many states' lists.

NCIB chief Joe Wehrle noted the report does not account for cars that were stolen using "sophisticated criminal methods" such as VIN switching and are therefore classified as financial crimes.

He urged drivers to minimize crimes of opportunity by locking cars and removing valuables. Thefts can also be thwarted by outfitting vehicles with warning, immobilizing or tracking devices.
