Police: Crooks Are Stealing Airbags from Cars

Miami Police want drivers to be on the lookout for crooks trying to steal airbags.

Just this week, three men were arrested for stealing several airbags from cars earlier this month.

According to police, thieves are targeting Acura and Honda models.

Police said they’re stealing the airbags between the hours of 1:00 and 5:00 a.m.

The National Insurance Crime Bureau said airbag theft and fraud are growing crime trends.

A new airbag from a car dealer costs around $1,000, according to the NICB, but can be purchased for $50-$200 on the streets.

If you have any information, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
