Police Looking For Bethesda Airbag Bandit


Published:

Montgomery County Police are looking into the possibility that an unspecified number of recent car airbag thefts in Bethesda might be related. On Tuesday, officers responded to a stolen airbag from a white Acura near the Park Bethesda apartment in the 5300 block of Westbard Ave. MCP spokeswoman Lucille Baur said police have not confirmed whether it is related to other incidents, one of which occurred in Potomac, now a part of the 2nd Police District headquartered in Bethesda. AAA has said Acuras are among the most popular targets for airbag theft. Recommendations for preventing airbag theft are very similar to tips for preventing any other type of theft from a vehicle. Police have repeatedly urged residents to lock their cars, most recently after a surveillance video surfaced in January that showed a car thief rummaging through unlocked cars in a Chevy Chase driveway.
