ago I lived in the suburbs of Philadelphia.One
day in the morning I found my the airbag from the
steering wheel of the car stolen.
officer after checking damage on my car said that
I was very lucky. I said , Do you mean I
have chances to return my airbag?

your apartment was working and we got his photo,
and it will be in our record.
I said, What
should I do?
Go,and buy a new airbag.
I was furious.
I went to speak about this matter with my
neighbor from the apartment next to mine. We
decided to be strong. He was completely
supportive, although he didnt have his

apartment building I was told that somebody
