Boston Police Using 2000 Honda Civic as Bait for Car Thieves

The National Insurance Crime Bureau donated a 2000 Honda Civic to the Boston Police Department for the purpose of catching car thieves.

The Honda Civic is the most stolen car in Massachusetts, and the Boston Police Department will be using a 2000 Honda Civic as bait to catch car thieves.

The car was a donation from the National Insurance Crime Bureau, which lists the 1998 Honda Civic as the most stolen vehicle in Massachusetts, according to the most recents statistics.

"The 2000 Honda Civic is used as bait for car thieves," said Boston District 8 City Councilor Mike Ross, chair of the Committee on Public Safety. "(This was provided by) a grant written by one of our industrious police lieutenants to go after car thieves as we continue to have problems (car thieves) in this city."

Am I crazy, or does publicizing this seem counterproductive to trying to get thieves to take the bait is known to be part of a trap???
