The Ashland Police Department bought a bicycle worth $1,500 to use as a "bait bike" to catch thieves. The department has used lower-value bait bikes, but Deputy Chief Tighe O'Meara says using a bike worth more than $1,000 makes its theft a felony with a possible 5-year sentence. O'Meara tells the Mail Tribune (http://bit.ly/1sX8Yyj ) police hope to catch higher-level criminals in organized operations that target expensive bikes.
