The Bait Bike…
A bait bike is a relatively valuable bicycle equipped with a hidden tracking device and utilized by law enforcement to catch thieves.  The value of the bicycle exceeds the minimum dollar amount required for felony classification, making the theft of a bait bike a rather serious offense.  This bait bike is left unattended where bicycles tend to get stolen, or where other theft crimes have recently occurred.  When the bait bike is stolen, the tracking device automatically alerts police to the theft.  Police then track and recover the stolen bike and take the thief, or thieves, to jail.
