Mexico Crackdown Reduces Auto Theft

United Press International

A police crackdown that focused on used car lots and auto parts shops helped reduced auto theft in Mexico’s capital by 18% in November, Judicial Police Director Jesus Miyazawa said Thursday.

The number of cars reported stolen in the city last month was 2,407, compared with 2,949 in October, he said, attributing the decline to investigations that sought out dealers in stolen cars and parts rather than individuals thieves. Police arrested 26 men during the November investigations, Miyazawa’s report said.
