REDDING, Calif. - Redding has been given the unflattering title of the fourth worst city in the entire country for car thefts, according to an insurance website.


With more than 91,000 people living in the Shasta County city, it is also the top California city to make the list, according to “Insureify.”


The report also shows that for every 100,000 people in the area there are 750 cars stolen.


Some Redding residents say it’s a problem that seems to be getting worse.


“I would go to any big city and feel comfortable leaving my car and in Redding, it is just really bad I can go on the computer any given day and see four or five posts of people’s cars who have been stolen,” said Robyn Thomas, a resident of Redding.


Other California cities that made the list were Bakersfield, Modesto and Stockton.
