Police are investigating after nearly a dozen vehicles were broken into early Tuesday at a Miami apartment building.

The incident happened at the parking garage at the West Brickell Apartments at 955 Southwest 2nd Avenue, Miami Police said.

Officials said the thieves targeted the airbags from the vehicles and broke in through the door locks, not the windows, and disabled the vehicles' batteries so the airbags wouldn't deploy.

"Whoever is responsible for this crime has to have some kind of knowledge," said Miaim Police Sgt. Freedie Cruz. "It could be one person, a group, or gang."


Nina Llerena said she was heading out to work when she noticed her car had been broken into and damaged.

"This is not the first time that vehicles were vandalized here because the company here, the building managers, have the gate open and apparently they don't care," Llerena said.

Police are investigating the break-ins, and anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
