January 14, 2009 11:54:36 PM PST
Fresno Police are cracking down on car theft -- as part of Operation "HEAT" -- or, Help Eliminate Auto Theft.Car thefts are down throughout the city, except in Southeast Fresno.

Last year, close to one thousand cars were stolen in that area. Officers say thieves are targeting Honda Accords and Civics.

This Honda was pulled over for not having a front license plate in the proper place. The car wasn't stolen, but the driver was driving without a license and is on probation.

Police searched the car and the passengers. Police didn't recover any stolen cars Wednesday, but they did make five arrests.
