Auto thefts rise in the Richmond District 

Police in the Richmond District are warning residents of an uptick in auto thefts, particularly among older model imported cars.

Auto thefts increased significantly from 11 in December to 28 recorded in January, including eight Hondas and 10 Toyotas, according to police.

Most of the cars stolen were older model vehicles, with 19 of them having been manufactured between 1991 and 2001.

Police are advising residents with older model, imported vehicles to garage them if possible. They are also telling residents not to park in front of vacant buildings or playgrounds, and to look for street parking where there are lights and foot traffic.
