If you own a large Ford truck or van, keep a close eye on it.

Chico has seen a huge spike in auto thefts associated with these types of vehicles.

According to local police, there has been at least 11 vehicle thefts involving commercial-sized Ford trucks and vans in the past 30 days.

One of the most recent thefts happened at Xtreme Diesel & Exhaust in Chico when a 2004 Ford F-250 was stolen from the parking sometime between late Monday night and early Tuesday morning.

Jason Carrier has owned this business for the past eight years and says he has never seen anything like this.

“I’ve never had a problem with anything out in front of my shop—not even a trailer,” Carrier said. “If you own a F-250, watch out.”

Chico Police are still investigating this issue.
