Stats indicate the highest number of thefts per capita and the most stolen vehicles in each state and Arkansas is right up there in terms of rising cases. 262 thefts were reported across the state per 100,000 people in 2020, which amounts to a ten-year average of 220 thefts.

If you live in Texas or Oklahoma those trucks seem to be just as popular to be stolen according to the study.
More than 2.3 million cars have been stolen over the last three years but some states such as Arkansas have seen a rise in cases. Colorado is the worst state for automobile theft with an increase of 144 percent. See the complete study here.
Many of these thefts are preventable if the owner would just keep their vehicles locked but many of the cases stem from the make and model of the vehicle and how easy they are to break into.
If you do have a vehicle that gets stolen, you must have comprehensive coverage as part of your insurance plan if you expect your vehicle to be replaced. Keep in mind that filing a claim can be a lengthy process and the insurer will most likely pay you what your car was worth at the time of the theft and not what the car was worth when you bought it.
You can not always know when your vehicle might be stolen but it's always best to know what to do in case it happens to you.
