After about two hours of extensive searching for a stolen car with a child inside, Baltimore police discovered that they’d sent out a helicopter to find a kid who was in daycare the whole time.
We've had some successes before finding stolen cars, but I'm really hoping we can do some good for this one. Partially because it's a Beetle, and partially because the owner is a 10 year old girl from a family of gearheads who saved up to buy the car she loved. This girl and her Beetle need to be re-united.
The Acura Integra, a car that went out of production in 2001, is still on America's top-ten most-stolen cars list.
With a massive New Jersey carjacking ring in the news, I have to wonder was what the biggest car-theft operation in history?
We've just had another great stolen car-recovery success, so while we're riding that high, let's see if we can do it again. This one was stolen very close to where I live in LA, and is a car very close to Jalop hearts: an El Camino.
If you're a car thief and you want to blend in, don't steal a Jaguar. You really should be stealing a Mercedes. Dr. Z must be so happy about this.
Car thieves sure seem to have tiny erections for rear-engined cars lately. We've seen a new string of Beetle thefts, and now we have another very iconic posterior-powered car stolen: A Delorean.

Great news! Guy Newmark's nearly million-mile 1964 Porsche 356, which was reported stolen this week, has been recovered thanks to the power of the Internet. Huzzah!

A group of kids in San Jose, Calif. did exactly what you shouldn't do if you stupidly decide to steal a car: attract a lot of attention in a residential area. They not only crashed into a house Friday night, but caused an explosion after the crash ruptured a gas line.
You guys are the best at finding things, and we here at Jalopnik are forever indebted to all of our readers for helping out one of our own. We're not opposed to trying to return the favor, so why not help us help another fellow Jalop and find this Acura Integra.
Okay, Jalops. Time to put your crime-fighting hats on once again. This time it's not just a car owner who needs our help, but a pup named Lexy.
Man, nothing ruins your day like getting your car stolen. I hate when that happens to me! I can't get to work or run errands, and then I have to take hours out of my schedule to go on a vengeance quest against the people who stole it. So inconvenient.
A nine year old Swedish boy armed with an Airsoft gun stole an electric car this past week in the Gothenburg suburb of Kortedala. According to witnesses the young boy yelled "It's Loaded" and pointed the gun at nearby adults during the car theft.
Sleuthy detectives in rural Australia have declared "Case Closed" in the incident of a mysteriously disappearing car and a phantom garage break in. The culprit? The car itself. And it would have gotten away with it if it weren't for those meddling kids.
The latest data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows thieves would rather snatch a high performance car over chop-shop money-makers like the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord.
