One of the core missions of the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles License & Theft Bureau is to recover stolen vehicles, expose chop shops, and investigate and assist other agencies in vehicle identification.
Preventing Vehicle Theft
A vehicle is stolen every 33 seconds in the United States.
The National Insurance Crime Bureau recommends owners use a "layered approach" to help protect their vehicles from getting stolen.
Reporting Vehicle Theft
