Aspen police using bait bikes to lure thieves

ASPEN — Flashy cars used by police as bait to catch car thieves are taking a back seat to bait bicycles being used by Aspen police.

Police say more than 33 bikes have been reported stolen in Aspen since May and there has been a 30 percent increase in bike thefts from 2011 to 2012.

The Aspen Times reports (http://tinyurl.com/nrw5qhe ) police are using GPS-enabled bicycles at various locations that have been identified as hot spots for bicycle theft.

If the bicycle with the device is moved, the Aspen Police Department will be alerted and police will be able to track it down, with hopes of nabbing the culprits.
