The Public Policy Institute of California reported Tuesday, June 12, 2018 that larcenies increased about 9 percent from 2014 to 2016. Thefts from motor vehicles accounted for about three-quarters of the increase. San Francisco alone recorded more than 30,000 auto burglaries in 2017. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli, File)
