2008_08_baitcar.jpgThieves eying electronics in cars better think twice: WNBC reports that the police arrested three men who broke into a "bait car"--a vehicle that had a laptop, GPS, and cell phone. Apparently the men, who were charged with grand larceny, criminal mischief and auto stripping, used a rock to break into the car. The Bronx DA's office says the sting was on Southern Boulevard (near Fordham and the NY Botanical Garden), where many break-ins have been occurring. And since cops were monitoring the area, they caught another person breaking into van belonging to Catholic Charities. Now, onto the DUMBO car window smasher!
