Over the last few months, police have lured a handful of thieves right into jail after busting them pedaling off with their bait bike. Above, is an image of the program's latest success which was posted to the SFPD's anti-bike theft Twitter account this morning.
We called Officer Matt Friedman, the cop in charge of catching bike thieves, to get more details on this latest bust, which is one of the first bait bike thefts we've seen documented on social media. No word back yet -- presumably he's arresting a bike thief as we type.
In the meantime, you can help keep crooks on their toes by getting your bait bike stickers at Park Station today and sticking them to your bikes. They'll be available in the next few weeks at other police station as well as bike shops.
