A man who was caught red-handed stealing bikes in Chico will be spending another four months behind bars.
A Butte County Judge this week sentenced Garett Brashears to six months in jail after he was arrested in the Chico Police Department’s new bait-bike operation.
Brashear’s has already spent about 50 days in jail since his arrest in late September.
Chico police launched its bait-bike program this past summer to combat the city’s chronic bike theft problem. The program uses a combination of GPS monitoring and police surveillance to catch bike thieves.
