Auto thefts rise in Italy

Rome, March 25 - Over 316 cars in Italy are stolen every day, more than 13 every hour, and one every 15 minutes as auto theft is on the rise across the country, according to a report Monday. Rome and Naples led the way in 2012, according to a study by LoJack Italia, which makes vehicle tracking devices, based on data from the interior minister. The report points out that 2012 saw a 1.8% increase in carjackings after a 10-year steady drop. The rate of retrieving stolen cars also went down from 45% in 2011 to 43% in 2012. Italy is second in Europe in terms of car thefts, the study said.
