Here is the monthly email from WSU. It seems as though over 60% of the cars stolen were Jeep/Dodge/Plymouth. Not sure if anyone is intrested but here you go.

2) November 2005 Campus Crime Summary:

ROBBERY: On November 18, 2005 at 12:45pm, a female WSU student reported
she was talking on her cell phone while walking in the alley behind the
Physics Building. She observed three juveniles walking towards her. As the
three walked past her, one of the subjects turned around and snatched the
students cell phone from her hand. All three subjects ran westbound to
Warren and Anthony Wayne Drive where they split up and ran in different
directions. WSUPD Officers stopped two of the subjects nearby however
neither was in possession of the stolen cell phone. The student identified
the two subjects and being present (with the 3rd subject) when the theft
occurred, but were not directly involved in the Unarmed Robbery. The
perpetrator was last seen running southbound on Anthony Wayne Drive at W.
Forest. He could not be located by Officers searching the area.
Students are reminded to be aware of their surroundings at all times.
Being engrossed in a cell phone conversation or the music playing on your
headphones takes your attention away from people and activities going on
around you.

or unlawful entry were reported on campus during November. Buildings
involved were: Mortuary Science, vacant Pharmacy building (downtown),

Yeah I am not sure. It's obviously broken down into campus vs. surrounding area. But there could be still more crime that is only reported to DPD, but if DPD forwards some numbers to WSU police I am uncertain.

The funny thing is that these emails are sent to every student and you would think that if you saw your type of car on that list at least once in a month you would buy a club or break lock real quick. I guess some people only learn from their mistakes and not others...

Another good thing is that it's alot of property issues not with persons involved such as muggings although, again, who knows what the DPD gets.

DCX has to improve their anti-theft options for customers. Right now they are the easiest product to hotwire. Granted most factory systems can be defeated but the easiest one is the one that the thieves go after. A club at least makes a thief consider another unclubbed car.
You have to wonder why DPD and WSUPD don't do some sting work? wtf?

Nov. 30th Commonwealth N/O W Warren 1997 Mercury Sable 4 dr

That's my car, but they didn't finish the story. A couple days later, I was walking to my girlfriend's house and I noticed a car on a lawn. I know there aren't any driveways on Commonwealth. I walked toward the car and it was mine. Parked on someone's lawn.

I called the police. The cop called a tow truck. When he showed up, he couldn't get the car started, so we had to push. Problem was a bunch of cars were parked on the street. So, we threw it in neutral, and pushed it down the sidewalk. We got it loaded up, and towed it my house.

The ordeal cost me $150 in towing fees. $100 to pay be deductible (they broke a mirror, my lock, and my steering column). Plus the fees to rent a car for a couple weeks.

Now I have a club. Hopefully they won't take it again.

Babycombo-did you report your car stolen to DPD or WSU police? This would give us some insight on whether or not DPD is reporting their numbers for this monthly email.

Sorry to hear about your car but gald you found it.

The cars on this report are only cars reported WSUPD. These stats are provided to the WSU community in order to educate them on where crimes are occuring and hopefully get some light bulbs to go off. DPD does not take reports for car thefts on WSU property, but WSUPD will take reports for areas off campus.

Additionally, the 2 depts have done stings and surveillance in the area. Majority of the cars taken from these areas that are recovered with drivers are juveniles from Murray Wright and Northwestern HS's.

Speaking of car thefts, does anyone know of a website where you can look up stolen cars by VIN number? I swear I once saw it on the news or read about it in the paper . . .
