ASHLAND, Ore. -- Three relatives have been charged with theft after allegedly stealing a decoy bike owned by the Ashland Police Department.
Deputy Chief Cory Falls told the Ashland Daily Tidings that the department places the "bait" bike along streets to catch thieves. The bike has electronic tracking equipment and Falls says it was found strapped to a rack on the back of a vehicle.
Charged were filed against Judith Thorndike, 51, Trevor Thorndike, 22, and Anna Thorndike, 20.
Falls says a second bicycle strapped to the Thorndikes' bike rack had been stolen from the campus at Southern Oregon University.
