of theft loses around $2881 in a single incident, yet there is something stolen every 13 seconds. Imagine the financial deficit those numbers indicate, and that is only what is reported.
What is stolen most often? Where is it stolen from? While answers are constantly changing, evolving and reforming, here are some statistics that shed a bit of light on which cities are victim to theft.
