LANSING (WKZO) -- Auto thefts continue to decline in the state, with the Michigan Automobile Theft Prevention Authority noting they have fallen over 65-percent since 1986.

The ATPA has released its report on the most stolen vehicles in 2012, with the 2000 Dodge Caravan topping the list in Michigan and the 1996 Honda Accord being the most-stolen vehicle nationally.  Auto thefts dropped 6.8-percent from 2010 to 2011 and fell another 0.3-percent from 2011 to 2012.

The ATPA distributes money to police, prosecutors and non-profits through a one-dollar assessment charged on every insured passenger vehicle in Michigan.
