LANCASTER More cars and
other motor vehicles are being
stolen in Pennsylvania’s rural
areas than ever before. This year’s
figure of 40.4 percent is 8.4 percent
higher than last year’s.
Livestock theft has jumped 16
percent higher than last year’s
record 81 percent. The other major
targets of rural crime are vacation
cabins, and gasoline from
unlocked tanks and pumps, ac
cording to Penn State Extension.
These statistics, taken from the
Pennsylvania State Police
Uniform Crime Report, prove
rural crime in the state is following
last year’s rising trend, and is still
rising drastically. Property of
fenses are more prevalent, and the
chance of having stolen property
returned is slim.
Figures from the same report
show that of 100 household goods
that are stolen, only about nine wUI
be returned. Theft of 100 firearms
wiil result m only 15 on the average
being returned. In the categories of
televisions, radios, and jewelry,
only 8 out of 100 will be recovered.

security from believing that crime
is a city problem and not a country
