KSBY Investigates:Exclusive interview with theft suspect on protecting your car

Posted: Updated:
"It's a sad thing people are losing their cars every day. And, you know, I am guilty of that," a Santa Maria man told KSBY reporter Caroline Lowe after he was arrested for stealing a car.

The interview is in Part 2 of KSBY's "Free Rides" investigative report which airs Friday at 6:00 p.m. on KSBY. It includes tips on how to protect your vehicle.

The KSBY investigation focuses on an auto theft epidemic going on in the Central Coast's largest city.

It revealed thieves in Santa Maria stole more cars in the first eight months of 2014 than in all of 2013. The 2013 numbers were 83% percent higher than 2012 numbers.

The increase in auto thefts in Santa Maria comes at a time when auto thefts have declined in California.
