Police in Aspen are hoping to beat bike thieves at their own game.

The police department is using GPS-enabled bicycles to snare crooks.

Police have identified the most common spots around town for bike thefts, and are leaving rigged bikes in those locations as bait. If the rigged bike is stolen, the GPS will allow officers to track where it goes--and hopefully lead police straight to the crooks.

The Aspen Police Department says bike thefts have risen over the last couple of years, with 33 bikes reported stolen just since May.
