Coveting is rather difficult to quantify, but cars are big ticket items that are likely coveted by covetous neighbors. So, for this sin in my rundown of the Ten Commandments, I thought I would look at motor vehicle thefts in 2012. According to the FBI data, California, Nevada, and Washington are hotspots for auto theft. The District of Columbia again has the highest auto theft rate, but I have excluded it. As with thefts in general, the northern tier of the country reports fewer auto thefts.
