Crown Heights residents alarmed by airbag robberies

Some residents in Crown Heights say they are on high alert due to a series of unusual auto thefts in their neighborhood.

Police say they are investigating a series of airbag robberies in the area.

Bengy Stock says he's heard of at least 12 instances of victims finding their car windows smashed and their airbags gone.
