Car break-ins tend to be more frequent toward the end of the year in Wichita.

The last two months of 2016 saw an 8 percent increase in the frequency of car break-ins compared to the rest of the year, according to data provided by the Wichita Police Department. Previous years also saw a rise.

Lt. Chris McAuliffe with the Wichita Police Department says car owners can best avoid break-ins by not making their cars a target of opportunity.


Fans of Mustangs, Falcons, and Torinos are expected to come out in the hundreds to the 23rd annual All Ford Show tomorrow at Sedgwick County Park.

Many models of Fords will be on display and in competition, including classics.

Kelly Keyser, a board member of the South Central Kansas Mustang Club, will show her dream car: a 2014 black-on-black convertible Mustang.

Kansas Gas Prices Jump

Gas prices in Kansas have been on the rise.

Jim Hanni of AAA Kansas says it’s not because of an uptick in demand. Instead, it’s because of a possible supply problem.

“There are concerns that we may not be able to get oil at the same pace out of the Middle East, and that certainly what’s been driving the increase in gas prices at the pump here now,” says Hanni.

He says that the uncertainty of the Middle Eastern oil supply is affecting the Midwest more than anywhere else in the nation.
