NICB Assist Law Enforcement with Stolen Airbag

NICB was contacted by the Yonkers Police Department requesting assistance with a possible stolen airbag. Yonkers PD impounded a vehicle with a suspended registration and inventoried the contents of the vehicle for safe keeping. An Autel MaxilM IM508 Advanced Key Programmer computer, numerous key fobs and an airbag were located in the vehicle. An NICB agent received a request from Yonkers PD Auto Crime to run the airbag number in ISO.  A search of the airbag number returned shipping information that showed the airbag was installed by the manufacturer in a Honda Accord.  Yonkers PD contacted the registered owner of the Honda Accord who stated that the driver’s airbag had been stolen from his vehicle earlier that night.  Both subjects in the vehicle were arrested for Criminal Possession of Stolen Property 4th.
