HPD Says: Please Help Us Find the Guys Who Stole Our Bait Car
The idea behind police bait cars is a sound one -- rig up a car that's just begging to be stolen, put it in a vulnerable spot and then wait for a thief to try his luck.
It doesn't always work, though. KHOU reports that HPD is asking for the public's assistance in locating two dudes who made off with a bait car outside Greenspoint Mall recently
"When the SUV was taken, investigators were notified electronically, but before they could get to the scene or log on to their tracking device, the men dumped the vehicle in an apartment complex," the station says.

You know how to set up the bait car, you just don't know how to keep track of the bait car.
