Make sure you lock your car doors. There's a newly released report that has California filling up the top ten list of cities with the most car thefts per capita.


Among cities with a population of at least 100,000 people, California cities account for 8 of the top 10 car theft hot spots. The National Insurance Crime Bureau reported that Modesto is the worst in the nation with a car theft to resident ratio of 816 to one. Fresno comes in second, followed by Bakersfield and Stockton.
