EDINA, Minn. (AP) — Police say a man stole a bait package left on a porch in Edina.

A police spokeswoman says the 36-year-old man was arrested early Thursday when he allegedly took the package from a resident’s porch in the Minneapolis suburb.

With the resident’s permission, police had placed the package that looked like a computer laptop box on Dec. 6. But a GPS tracker was hidden inside.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports police received an alert when the package began to move. Police stopped the suspect and discovered more packages in his car.
