GAYLE KING: It is an expensive New Year for a jeweler right here in Manhattan. Three hoodie thieves broke in and reportedly stole about six million dollars worth of gems. When? New Year`s Eve. They waited until the stroke of midnight to pull off this heist. Hundreds of thousands of people and about seven thousand police were just a few blocks away celebrating the New Year`s in Times Square. Look on the-- on the floor there. You can see the lights, camera, action from Times Square dancing around. Police say the suspects are still on the leu-- loose. And they believe that this robbery was an inside job.


GAYLE KING: You think?

NORAH O`DONNELL: I know. You get a pretty good look at the guy`s face. He looks right into the camera.

GAYLE KING: Somebody knows these guys.


GAYLE KING: Inside job. We think that, too.


GAYLE KING: Welcome back to CBS THIS MORNING. Coming up in this half hour, a toddler`s remarkable show of strength. Dramatic video shows a moment that a dresser topples on to the twin two-year-olds. I know, Norah, I know that`s hard for you to watch, mom of twins. And how they escaped injury and the new warning for parents.

NORAH O`DONNELL: Plus, as more states legalize marijuana, some teenagers are downplaying the drug`s risks. Ahead, whey experts are afraid, more young people could get hooked on pot and the response from a supporter of legalization.

CHARLIE ROSE: Time to show you some of this morning`s headlines from around the globe.

The Times of London says a Syrian refugee was arrested in Germany of an alleged terror plot. Prosecutors say the man contacted a member of ISIS and asked for nearly one hundred and ninety thousand dollars to fund a bombing attack. The suspect, allegedly, planned to repaint vehicles to make them look like police cars and pack them with explosives for attacks in Western Europe. He was detained Saturday near the German-French border.

GAYLE KING: Times says that Pope Francis is telling Roman Catholic bishops to have zero tolerance for child abuse. In a letter to bishops released just yesterday, the pope said children sexually abused by priest is a sin that shames us. He wrote this in the letter, "Let us find the courage needed to take all necessary measures and to protect in every way the lives of our children, so that such crimes may never be repeated. Let us adhere, clearly and faithfully, to zero tolerance."

NORAH O`DONNELL: Cleveland`s Plains Dealer says the recovery mission for a missing plane resumes today. More than a hundred and twenty pieces of debris have been recovered from Lake Erie. The debris may be connected to the missing Cessna that took off Thursday night with six people onboard. The plane dropped off radar shortly after leaving Burke Lakefront Airport in Cleveland. Officials confirm that a bag found washed ashore belonged to a missing passenger.

The New York Times says SpaceX is ready to launch rockets again after recent explosion. Its Falcon 9 rocket was destroyed on the launch pad at Cape Canaveral. A two-hundred-million-dollar satellite was on board. The company now says a breach in the helium container caused the September explosion. SpaceX is revamping its fuel procedures. The company could have its next rocket launch as soon as Sunday.

NORAH O`DONNELL: Our Charlotte affiliate WBTV says United Airlines is investigating how a baggage handler got locked in a cargo hold before the plane took off. The United Express flight was operated by Mesa Airlines. It took off from Charlotte Sunday and landed more than an hour later at Washington Dallas Airport. Now, United says the handler was not hurt. The flight reached an altitude of twenty-seven thousand feet. Now, it`s not clear if the cargo hold was pressurized for temperature control. Can you imagine?

CHARLIE ROSE: How cold it could get.

NORAH O`DONNELL: I know, I mean, I`d be banging on the door.

GAYLE KING: Those-- those United Express jets aren`t that big. So you wonder how that happened.

NORAH O`DONNELL: Oh, they`re small. Yeah.



GAYLE KING: And the Hollywood Reporter says that famous Hollywood sign will get new security after a prankster changed the sign to read Hollyweed over the weekend. A group that maintains the landmark says it will use additional technology to tighten surveillance and keep trespria-- trespassers away. They took duct tape and then--


GAYLE KING: X`d out the E and the E`s.

NORAH O`DONNELL: Yeah. There you go.

GAYLE KING: There you go.

NORAH O`DONNELL: Well, a newly released video is a sobering reminder of the hidden danger of falling furniture. Two toddlers in Utah were not hurt when the dresser they were climbing tipped over on them. One of the little boys was trapped until his brother--look at this--managed to push the dresser off of him.


NORAH O`DONNELL: Anna Werner is here with reaction from the twins` mother. Anna, good morning.

CHARLIE ROSE: Little hero there.

ANNA WERNER (CBS News Correspondent): Good morning. Yeah. It`s hard to watch. The video captured by the family`s security system is startling. But they say they released it to warn parents this could happen to them. Now it`s also the latest in a string of similar incidents involving furniture retailer IKEA.

(Begin VT)

ANNA WERNER: The video from last Thursday morning shows the two-year-old twin brothers Bowdy and Brock as they played on their dresser. Then the unthinkable happened. The unsecured more than one-hundred-pound IKEA dresser tipped over pinning Brock under its weight.

KAYLI SHOFF: You can see in the video he is in pain like I need-- I need to help my brother. Somehow he pushed it off of him because it is a very heavy dresser.

ANNA WERNER: After nearly two long, at times painful to watch minutes, two- year-old Bowdy figured out how to nudge the dresser off his brother.

KAYLI SHOFF: My heart sank. I didn`t know what to do. I felt like the worst mom.

ANNA WERNER: Their home Kayli Shoff says the boys escaped injury but she released her home video to alert other parents to the injury risk.

KAYLI SHOFF: It`s just not the first thing that you think about to do with a dresser or safety as far as children. It`s just something you keep putting off, and putting off, and then it never gets done.

LARS PETERSSON (IKEA U.S. President): The safety of our customers is the most important thin; and, therefore, we`re taking this unprecedented action.

ANNA WERNER: This latest incident involving an IKEA product comes after the retailer recalled at least twenty-nine million dressers and chests at risk of tipping over in June of 2016 after the deaths of at least three children since 2014.

LARS PETERSSON: Death of a child is an incomprehensible tragedy and it should never happen to any family.

ANNA WERNER: Just last month IKEA settled three wrongful death claims out of court for fifty million dollars. In a statement, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said it`s investigating the incident, adding that it is actively working with the entire furniture industry to create a stronger safety standard that will make furniture more inherently stable.

(End VT)

ANNA WERNER: Now, the dresser that tipped over on the toddlers which Kayli Shoff told us is the eight-drawer Hemnes was not in the IKEA recall but on their website and in the booklet that comes with the dresser. They do, clearly, tell consumers that the dresser product must be secured to the wall using the provided anchors, which a lot of people do not do. Now, we reached out to IKEA for comment. We have not heard back yet. But--

GAYLE KING: Don`t you think it can happen about any kind of dresser, though, if they pull out the drawers and stand on it?

ANNA WERNER: Conceivably.

GAYLE KING: Yeah, if it`s not bolted.

ANNA WERNER: That`s the thing. And this wasn`t one of the tallest dressers- -


ANNA WERNER: --you know, ever sold. It`s interesting about that video, though, because you watch the toddler, as he`s clearly distressed, trying to process--


NORAH O`DONNELL: What to do.


GAYLE KING: And then he goes in action.

ANNA WERNER: He knows his brother is in pain.


ANNA WERNER: Well, the mother, by the way, it was very early in the morning. So it was the time of day when normally the kids would be waking up and they hadn`t heard any noise out of them yet.

GAYLE KING: Well, she might have felt that it was a bad mom moment for her, but she saved a lot of lives with people looking at that video.

NORAH O`DONNELL: Yeah. A really good mom.

GAYLE KING: So glad it had a happy ending.

ANNA WERNER: Have a happy ending.

GAYLE KING: Anchor those-- anchor those dressers.


CHARLIE ROSE: And have smart kids.

GAYLE KING: Yeah and have smart kids.

NORAH O`DONNELL: Smart kids.


More states are making marijuana legal. And new research finds more teenagers don`t think that that`s so bad for you. Is there a connection? Ahead, we hear both sides of the pot debate.

And we invite you-- guess what? New Year, we still got that invitation going to subscribe to our CBS THIS MORNING Podcast. You`ll get the news of the day, extended interviews and Norah`s favorites, though, what?

NORAH O`DONNELL: Podcast originals.

GAYLE KING: Originals, we like that word around here. Find them all on iTunes and Apple`s podcast app. We`ll be right back.


GAYLE KING: Teenagers` attitudes about marijuana, they are changing at the same time that more states are making the drug legal. A new study in the Journal of the American Medical Association finds that some teens perceive pot as having a lower risk than in the past. Recreational marijuana use is now allowed in eight states and Washington, DC. Medical use is legal in twenty-eight states and DC. One study predicts the legal marijuana market to generate around twenty-two billion dollars, with a B, a year by 2020. John Blackstone is in San Francisco, where voters legalized recreational pot last year. John, good morning.
