Have you ever had your car stolen? Hopefully it's something you won't have to go through. I haven't, however I have had my car broken into. In fact I actually caught him in the act and chased him down the street while calling Police on my cell. If you wondering ... yes we caught him!

In a recent PATCH article they published a list of the top 100 towns around the State for car thefts. The information came from the state's "Uniform Crime Report". Newark had the highest rate in New Jersey. Here at the shore, the town with the most is in Ocean County. Lakewood had the highest rate. In Monmouth County it was Neptune.
