Ten Colorado Counties Where You're Likeliest to Get Your Car Stolen

Last year, we posted about the ten Denver neighborhoods where you're most likely to get your car stolen.

Turns out, thought, that the car theft rates in other counties in Colorado are considerably higher than in the Mile High City.

Indeed, data from FindTheBest.com shows that the counties with the highest incidence of car theft per 1,000 residents are mostly well outside the metro area — although there is one notable exception.

Below, check out the photo-illustrated top ten, featuring FindTheBest.com data. That's followed by an interactive heat map that will give you car-theft rates for the Colorado counties further down the list — and plenty of other data is a click away.
