There is a new warning for car owners. Motor vehicle thefts are up across New York City. NYPD data shows they're up 350% compared to mid-2019 and 18% over this time last year. And as CBS New York investigative reporter Tim McNicholas found out, the NYPD is cracking down on these crimes in two particular areas.
