KAMLOOPS - RCMP have arrested two men who were caught stealing bait cars in Kamloops

RCMP say the first incident occurred on Monday, Jan. 29, when a bait car was activated in the 400 block of Royal Avenue. One man was seen inside the vehicle and was arrested by police moments later.

The second bait car theft was overnight last night, Feb. 9, according to an RCMP media release. A man was arrested and charged after a bait car was stolen from the 500 block of Schubert Avenue and tracked down a short distance away.

Police say the Bait Car program is one of many tools used to combat property crime. Even so police remind the public to ensure all valuables are removed from parked cars and to lock doors.

A 25 year-old man and a 38 year-old man have both been released from custody with a promise to appear in court.
