Arlington 'Bait Car' Hooks Suspect... A US police department has made a successful arrest using a bait car loaded with GPS positioning and alarm equipment. Basically they set up a nondescript but suitable theft target vehicle, then left it there until it was stolen. The thief was astonished when police swooped on him just minutes later. Basically this is the same technology that high-end car alarm systems have been offering for a few years... it includes the ability to shut the car down, preventing high-speed pursuit situations. The question for me is how long it will take thieves to learn how to identify bait cars, then disable the equipment and steal the lot - the car and expensive electronics.
