Sacramento, Calif., police are using bikes outfitted with GPS tracking devices as bait to lure bike thieves.

The Sacramento Bee reports that one of the bikes was stolen around 3:30 p.m. Saturday and tracked to an area across the river in West Sacramento. A 40-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of grand theft, possession of stolen property and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.

Sacramento police say the so-called bait bikes are a great tool to reduce bike theft.
