A Portland mother is asking police to crack down on the so-called Kia Challenge, a car theft trend she said her daughter has participated in.
“They’re stealing these cars, wrecking them or joyriding in them and wrecking them,” said Sherrie, who asked KGW not to use her last name.
The popular TikTok trend dares people to steal Kia and Hyundai vehicles. Videos posted on the social media site show how to use a USB cable and other tools to do it.
According to Portland police statistics, a total of 84 Kia and Hyundai vehicles were stolen in July of this year, more than quadruple the number of those reported stolen in July of 2021.
