APD to expand bait system.

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – It won’t be just cars and houses anymore. The APD bait system has been so successful catching crooks the department now plans to put the bait on smaller items such as bicycles, tools, computers, rims and stereos.

They can put the bait on just about anything thieves can get their hands on.

APD is also now teaming up with Rio Rancho Police Department and the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s department to implement the system.

APD says it is also putting up signs across the city that warns anyone thinking about stealing, that a bait car is in the area.
