Gone bike fishin’
The Sacramento Police Department to start nabbing unsuspecting bicycle thieves with the deployment of two ‘bait bikes’ around Midtown
Midtown is after you, bike thieves.
Frustrated with the perpetual problem of pedaled rides going AWOL, the Handle District board of directors teamed up with the Sacramento Police Department to start nabbing unsuspecting bicycle thieves with the deployment of two “bait bikes” around Midtown.
True to Sacramento form, the first bike was stolen less than two hours after police deployed it.
While they didn't catch the thief this time around, cops did retrieve the bicycle, using it to take down a string of other crooks. “We have been making consistent arrests, and we have no doubt that many of the thieves we have arrested have been stealing dozens of bikes per month,” said Sac P.D.'s Marc Coopwood.
Keep fishing, officers.
