It didn't take me long to notice the high number of stolen Hellcat threads on this forum. I 've responded to several of these threads sharing my own precautions such as locking my clutch pedal, locking my OBD II port, and even parking spaces I choose to make it more difficult for hook 'n go thefts.

I'd like to share an online resource I've been using for years, starting after I bought my (then) new 2013 Challenger R/T, and now for my SRT Hellcat. is a free subscription website that allows you to monitor almost any address or other location in the United States for a wide range of reported criminal activity with customizable radii ranging from 500 feet to 2 miles. The site provides an option to set a custom time range which allows you to view days, weeks, months, or years of historical criminal data. There's also a filter to select the types of reported crimes you wish to view including specific reports for vehicle theft, vehicle vandalism, and vehicle burglary. I usually set the filters to include all reported crimes for a given area.

Whenever I take my cat to an unfamiliar location for a meet, I always check out the site on crimemapping to see how safe the area is relative to reported criminal activity for the preceding four weeks. I usually choose a radius of about a 1/4 mile as that usually covers the size of most large auto shows and meets. If I plan to spend the night at a hotel, I'll punch in the hotel's address and choose a radius of 500 feet which is usually sufficient to cover most hotel parking lots.

Here's a YouTube explaining the features of My apologies for the 1950's PSA styled narration... :whistle:

Appreciate the share. Anything helps given the frequency of stolen cats. A local news station had an article yesterday about how hellcats are targeted and how easy it is to take them.
