Police: Armed Robbery Suspects Try to Steal Car but Can't Drive Stick Shift

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- It turns out we may not need a security alarm to protect our cars from theft, instead how about a stick shift.

Rockford police are searching for three men who they say robbed a man at gunpoint Tuesday on Conklin Drive.

Officers say the suspects tried to steal the victim's car but didn't get very far considering they didn't know how to drive stick shift.
