Car Thief Makes Off with the Bait
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
Police in Dallas, Texas, try to bait car thieves by setting out bait. They plant cars on the street and wait for people to steal them. The cars are equipped with high-tech tracking devices. All of which sounded like a good plan until somebody stole a bait car and police were unable to find it. Authorities think the tracking device might have broken down. In any case, there is a car thief somewhere in America who must really be enjoying this news.
