Top ten Denver neighborhoods where you're most likely to get your car stolen

Earlier this month, we broke down the number of crimes in one Denver neighborhood -- ours -- and discovered there had been 23 over the course of eleven days. Now, Fox31 has taken this concept a step further by using Denver Police Department records to discover the Denver neighborhoods with the most and least crime between 2009 and 2013 in several categories -- including auto theft.

Look below to count down the top ten Denver neighborhoods where you're most likely to get your car stolen, complete with interactive graphics (if you have problems seeing the image, click "View Larger Map") and theft totals from each area.
