Working hard to buy that shiny new bicycle only to get it stolen hurts like nothing else in the world. That’s why everyone who suffered such a loss will be pleased to watch the video below. The San Francisco Police Department’s Mission Station is planting bait bikes in the streets to bust thieves. And while the practice may be considered controversial, it definitely bears fruit.
Mission Officers will continue undercover surveillance throughout the Mission Police District using "Bait Bikes" to catch thieves. This incident occurred on Harrison St. in front of Mission Cliffs during heavy traffic and pedestrian hours this week. @SFPD @SFPDCares pic.twitter.com/WB4UHpuvLU
