I wonder what's up with this? Apparently, the Missoula Police Department is seeing a sudden surge in abandoned vehicles in town, and they report that their lot is filling up much faster than normal.

Generally speaking, the police hold an auction to clear the lot every six months or so. But it filled up so quickly this time that they had to hold another only three months after the last auction.

That's a lot of abandoned cars in a short amount of time! Anybody have any ideas about why this might be happening?
