Carjackings on the Rise Amid Pandemic

NPR reports that the FBI does not gather numbers, nationwide, for carjackings, but individual cities do, and these cities are reporting an explosive uptick in carjackings as the pandemic still continues. In fact, Minneapolis reported 405 carjackings in 2020, which is more than triple the number for the entire year of 2019. What’s even worse, according to the NPR report is the fact that many of the suspects arrested in these events are juveniles between the ages of 11 and 17.

Minneapolis isn’t alone in this marked increase in carjackings. Other cities that have noticed sharp increases include:

  • New Orleans, LA
  • Kansas City, MO
  • Louisville, KY
  • Washington, D.C.
  • Chicago, IL
