STOLEN IN STATE
IN PAST MONTH
Only 63 Recovered Up To
First of January; Warn
Raleigh.—A total of 166 automobiles
,were stolen in North Carolina during
December, according to figures releas
ed today by the theft bureau of the
State Department of Revenue. Of
these 166 cars that were stolen only
63 were recovered, although 34 cars
stolen in previous months were recov
ered, making a total of 97 cars re
covered in December. This leaves 103
of the cars stolen in December still
junrecovered, with more than 200 cars
| stolen in previous months still miss
ing and unaccounted for.
I A large number of the cars stolen
lin December were taken out of the
State, according to L. S. Harris, chief
of the theft bureau. From December
J through February, thefts of cars usu J
ally increase in North Carolina, with
a majority of the cars being taken out
of the State, either south to Florida
or north towards New York.
"During these three months thous
ands of 'floaters,' ,many of them pro
fcsSiOjTat thtevc? and crooks," pass!
through North Carolina, first going
south in quest of a milder climate and 1
'easier pickings' and then when they
do not find it, they start back north
again." said Mr. Harris. These crooks
and' floaters are always on the lookout
for automobiles they can steal. Their
tactics are usually to steal a car and
drive it several hundred miles, then
find another one and abandon the first
car, and so on until they reach their
destination. They seldom try to keep
a car or to dispose of it, since they
know that the government is especially !
hard on those who steal automobiles
and transport them from one State to
"However, some of these thieves
work in connection with organized
gangs that take the stolen cars, change!
the numbers even on the motors, re
paint the bodies and so change them
as to make identification almost im
possible. Cars stolen by thejte thieves
are very hard to trace.
"For the next several months, car
owners should .be more careful than
ever to always lock their cars, re
gardless of where they leave them,
since- an unlocked car is not safe any
where, not even in the owner's ga
