Auto theft numbers plummet in Burnaby

Auto thefts in Burnaby fell by 29 per cent in 2010 compared to 2009, says ICBC. During that time, break-ins of vehicles dropped by 30 per cent.

The 2010 figures are a 77 per cent drop in vehicle thefts and a 51 per cent drop in break-ins to vehicles compared to 2003, when the bait car program was introduced.

ICBC has recently launched a similar program, “bait trailers,” in its fight against auto crime.
