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 BaitBike.com 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.

On September 20, 2010 Inside Edition featured Pegasus Technologies CEO Jason Cecchettini catching bike theives in the act. Read the whole story here.

April 3, 2007
Yuba City, California

On the afternoon of April 3, 2007, the bait bike was deployed in front of WalMart in Yuba City, CA. After approximately one hour, the bike was stolen. Yuba City police officers tracked the bike to Taco Bell on Bridge Street where a white male adult was seen riding the bait bike accompanied by two white male juveniles on two other bikes. All three subjects were detained by officers and after investigating the incident, the adult and his 14 year old son were both arrested and booked into Jail. The second juvenile was released. Surveillance cameras caught the incident on video, portions of which are shown below.
