Last year, the city enjoyed a significant drop in its epidemic of auto burglaries. The news so far this year is not so good. From January through mid-September, Northern Station reports that there were 3,974 auto burglaries, up nearly 200 from the 3,789 for the same period in 2018.
Burglaries also rose, reaching 651 for the year to date, compared to 614 in 2018; but robberies dropped slightly to 240 in 2019 from 260 in 2018.
