The OIJ data also shows that 60% of the vehicles were stolen from a public road, mostly due to owner carelessness, like leaving the car open, and even with keys in the ignition.

Walter Espinoza, director of the OIJ said that in general, vehicle theft in the country “is very similar to 2014”.

Other data in the OIJ report shows 2002 to 2010 models are the most stolen, dismantled and sold for parts; late models, are shipped out of the country.
