According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau, there was a pretty significant increase in the number of stolen vehicles from 2019 to 2020, nationwide. While putting together their latest “Hot Wheels” report about the most stolen vehicles in America, they attributed the increase to the pandemic, the economic slowdown and the realignment that many law enforcement agencies went through following the death of George Flloyd.

The most recent data they had to put together the list of most stolen vehicles in every state and hot spots for vehicle thefts was from 2020. From 2019 to 2020, Idaho saw a 14% rise in the number of car thefts with 1,911 stolen vehicles reported in 2020. While that might seem like a lot, it’s not all bad news from Idaho. When the NICB ranked 2020’s car theft rates in all 50 states, Washington DC and Puerto Rico, Idaho ranked 49. 

Looking at Idaho’s major metros, Boise saw the most stolen vehicles (864) but it was Pocatello that had the highest rate of car thefts per capita.
