Massachusetts Car Thieves Target Honda Stereos

June 24, 2010

Police in Springfield, Massachusetts are perplexed by a rash of car thefts in which just one brand of car has been targeted, and just one part has been stolen.

Police say more than 20 Honda Accords and Civics from the 1994 to 1997 model years have been stolen since last Thursday, and in most cases, the only thing missing when the vehicles are recovered is the factory-installed stereo.

Mid-1990s Hondas are popular with car thieves, but members of the auto theft unit can’t figure out why only the stereos are being taken.

Sgt. John Delaney says detectives have dusted the stolen cars for finger prints and are pursuing leads.

Meanwhile, he says, police are urging Honda owners to lock their vehicles and invest in anti-theft systems.
