Bad Time to Own a BMW

New, 9 comments

The Beverly Park Press reports that there's been 38 burglaries of BMW cars since April in the Wilshire area. According the police, the burglar usually drills a hole near the driver's door, and then only steals the airbags and headlights from the cars (headlights can resell for $1,500 each; airbags for between $2,500-$5,000 each). "'All of the BMWs that have been targeted had factory alarm systems, and somehow, he is not tripping the alarms,” Det. Mike Smith says. “We suspect it is someone who has experience working on BMWs.” [Beverly Park Press]
