AUSTIN -- A GPS tracking system on one of the University of Texas Police Department's bikes helped them track down a bike thief on Friday.

UTPD installed a tracking system on one of their bikes to help them catch the thieves in action. An arrest affidavit said that Eddie Marshall Jr. stole the bike from a campus bike rack along Red River Street.

Marshall has two other theft convictions, including stealing another bike from campus. In a Defenders investigation, UTPD said the "bait bikes" were working to minimize thefts.
