On the evening of May 23rd, 2002 at approximately 9:30PM the bait bike was left in the back of a pick up truck parked in an apartment complex located in Sacramento County North Central Division, Zone 3. This area was chosen due to a rash of vehicle burglaries that had occurred at this apartment complex within the previous three weeks. Three and a half hours later at 1:00AM on May 24th, the bike was stolen from the back of the truck. This movement activated the ProAct-IV tracking device hidden within the bicycle. The Sacramento Sheriff’s Department immediately began to track the bait bike’s signal and followed it to a house located approximately one mile from where the bike was stolen. While deputies were parked in front of the house waiting for back-up to arrive, a white male adult exited the house and stood on the front porch. Deputies detained the subject and utilized a portable UV Light Source to check the subject’s hands for the presence of clue spray. The palms of both of his hands fluoresced bright orange from the clue spray on the handgrips of the bait bike. The amount of clue spray on his hands indicated that he had ridden the bike for some distance. The suspect was arrested and booked for 487 P.C. Grand Theft. The suspect admitted that he had stolen the bicycle.
