What to do if your car is stolen in Houston

If you suddenly can't find your car or truck, your first action is to call police.

Houston police said if the car is being stolen in front of you, call 911. But, if the vehicle is believed stolen after the fact, call the Teleserve Unit at 713-884-3131.

You will need your driver's license, VIN number, license plate number, a description of your vehicle, and any significant changes you've made to the vehicle, including custom wheels, tires, or accessories.

You should also gather any component parts you can identify by serial number or personal identification number.
