We at get calls every day from people interested in tracking their personal belongings. While there are numerous solutions for tracking something large like a vehicle or a boat, the technology to track smaller items such as a laptop computer is still in its infancy. However, this technology is currently making great strides and we expect that within a year or two, there will be several solutions available to track just about anything you may want to track. If you would like to keep up to date on the state of the art in tracking solutions, follow us on Twitter @BaitBike1 and we will alert you as we post progress reports and product reviews right here on

Jason got to spend some time in San Francisco with the Today show.

We at would like to design a few new caps and T-Shirts for our friends and supporters. While we have come up with several new slogans, we thought that it might be fun to get our supporters involved. So, we have decided to have a contest to see what creative slogans you can come up with. We will decide the winner, or winners, and if we decide to use your slogan, you will get a free cap and T-shirt. The slogan should be less than 6 words in length as it must fit on the cap.

Below is our current cap design. The new slogan would replace “Catching Bike Thieves In The Act.” The funnier, the better, and don’t worry about keeping your suggestions clean. We don’t have anyone that we need to impress, and we don’t mind offending people either. Political correctness is for pussies. See what we mean?

Please email your suggestions to Jason Cecchettini no later than Saturday August 17th. cap



Caught Red Handed is exciting, unscripted, true reality TV.’s Jason Cecchettini and Manny Leon take viewers on a wild ride into the real world of bicycle theft. We utilize high-end bicycles equipped with hidden tracking devices and leave them in areas that have had significant problems with not only bike theft, but residential burglaries, shoplifting, and other such property crimes.  Our intent is to capture the real trouble-makers, not simple petty thieves of opportunity.  Every theft is unique and sometimes the criminals themselves are quite entertaining.

With the assistance of’s Jason Cecchettini, Inside Edition’s Lisa Guerrero and the I-Squad bait and track a couple of laptop computer thieves. Can you say “BUSTED”?

On February 10, 2012 Inside Edition featured Pegasus Technologies CEO Jason Cecchettini catching bike theives in the act. Check it out.

Chris Hansen goes under cover as a bike messenger pulls out a pair of bolt cutters and steals a bike; he accompanies the police as they track down thieves using high-tech tracking devices; and a bike dealer who thinks they’re trying to sell him a stolen bike goes after Chris Hansen – it’s the most explosive confrontation of Hansen’s career.


Ride along with as our bait bike is stolen and then tracked down and recovered. The Sacramento Police Department does an outstanding job locating the bad guy, and then taking him to jail.
