THE Philippine National Police Highway Patrol Group (PNPHPG) report released on Tuesday showed that 3,028 vehicles, including motorcycles, were stolen from January to June this year. The figure was 61 percent higher than last year when 1, 881 vehicles were recorded stolen for the same period. The report said an average of two motor vehicles, the likes of SUV or sedan, were stolen and 16 motorcycles were taken by thieves daily this year. February has the highest number of stolen vehicles at 639 followed by March (550) and January (416). PNPHPG Director Chief Supt. Arrazad Subong said that unlike cars, motorcycles are easier to dispose of and can be sold parts by parts, and selling motorcycles are more profitable than ordinary vehicles.
