Anyone who has ever had a bike stolen will be pleased that the San Francisco Police Department’s Mission Station is stepping up efforts to bust bicycle thieves.
They may be even happier to view a video that police posted on Twitter showing cops tackling a man who allegedly took a “bait bike” during an undercover surveillance operation two days earlier.
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
