Hot Wheels: An investigation into juvenile auto thefts

Added on by Monica Herndon.

The Tampa Bay Times worked on an investigation into the juvenile auto theft problem in St. Petersburg, Fla. Kids as young as ten are trying door handles and stealing cars when they find the keys inside. Dirk Shadd shot all the video and stills for the project, and I edited his work. Below are two of the videos that we worked on. You can find the full project here.
