A new report released today shows auto thefts in Michigan continue to drop.
The Michigan Auto Theft Prevention Authority says since it's first report in 1986, auto thefts have decreased by 65 percent.
The executive director of the group, Dan Vartanian, credits the drop to efforts by law enforcement, prosecutors and community organizations.
From 2010 to 2011 auto thefts decreased 6.8 percent, and fell another .03 percent from 2011 to-2012.
