Chevy pickup most stolen vehicle in Ohio last year

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio thieves like Chevy pickup trucks.

A new report shows that the 1994 full-size Chevrolet pickup was the most common vehicle to be stolen in Ohio last year.

It was the second straight year that this Chevy truck headed the list from the National Insurance Crime Bureau. The 2000 Dodge Caravan, which used to be at the top of the list, was second.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/VymlX6 ), which reported on the release of the list Monday, notes that the rankings are dominated by old cars. The newest vehicle is the 2004 Ford full-size pickup.

Older cars are easier to steal and don't stand out.

Nationally, the Honda Accord was the most frequently stolen car last year, regardless of model year.
