Most stolen cars in KC over the past three years

Channel 5 has a report out today about our most stolen cars so far this year. I wanted to dig back a little deeper and let you know the 10 most stolen vehicles over the past three years. Some of these are because they're just such popular vehicles and there are a lot of them on the road.

Others are work of thieves who specialize - the Dodge Intrepid was largely the work of a small crime ring that stole dozens of them in 2008 and 2009 who are now in prison (the Intrepid isn't even in the top 10 so far this year).

And just a warning as temperatures get colder - many of our car thefts come from vehicles left running unattended in the winter. Many of the cars below were part of that:

1.) Honda Accord
2.) Ford F150
3.) Dodge Intrepid
4.) Ford Taurus
5.) Jeep Cherokee
6.) Chevrolet Silverado
7.) Dodge Caravan
8.) Ford Explorer
9.) Oldsmobile Cutlass
10.) Dodge Ram
