Spokane No. 4 for Stolen Vehicles

Spokane just made a dubious list. It was ranked No. 4 in the country for car theft rates. The annual “Hot Spots” report from the National Insurance Crime Bureau said the Spokane metropolitan area had 2,763 car thefts in 2010, a rate of 586.35 per 100,000 residents. The Seattle-metro area jumped to 13th from 37th last year on the list, and leads the state with more than 55% of all auto thefts/KREM. More here.

Question: How you ever had a vehicle stolen? Can you tell us about the experience?
