New vehicle theft data from Anchorage Police confirms a common perception in Anchorage that the problem is growing-- and fast-- and APD says as they make arrests in car theft cases, they're noticing familiar faces.
When Corwin Perkins left his truck running with the keys locked inside earlier this month, he says he was only gone for 30 seconds before the truck disappeared from the parking spot right outside his place of work.
"I get to the little entryway over there, look out, and I'm like, 'Where the hell is it?' Just gone. That fast," he said.
