Madison police say Kia stolen along Schroeder Road

MADISON, Wis. — Madison police said a Kia was stolen Monday along Schroeder Road near Struck Street.

Police said a man loaned the car to a roommate, who returned the vehicle Monday night. However, when the man went to drive the car on Tuesday, it was gone.

Officers were sent to the 6700 block of Schroeder Road just before 11 a.m. Tuesday and found broken glass around where the car had been parked.

An investigation is ongoing.

Madison police officials have previously said that Kia models newer than 2011 and Hyundai models newer than 2015 have a target on their backs because of a technical issue that makes them easier to steal.

A report released in June found that over half of the stolen vehicle cases in Madison involved either a Kia or a Hyundai.
