Hide your kids, hide your wife. There's a crime wave sweeping through … Saratoga Springs?
An ad by Center Forward PAC which is supporting Rep. Jim Matheson makes the claim that Saratoga Springs experienced "skyrocketing crime" during Mia Love's tenure on the city council and as mayor.
But the data doesn't actually bear out the claim. The chart above shows that the crime rate in Saratoga Springs is considerably lower than the rest of Utah County and is roughly a third of what the crime rate is statewide.
