Video: Watch these Teens Steal Police 'Bait Car'


In Albuquerque, New Mexico, police set up hidden cameras inside what is called a 'bait car,' which several teens fell for. A 15-year-old boy and his three friends stole the car, so they thought (video below).

As reported by the Daily Mail, the teens express glee at their theft as one teen asks the driver how he got the car. The driver answers: "'I don’t know dog. I saw this car with the keys inside. I opened the door, it was unlocked. I grabbed the keys and was like, this is the car."

One legal question is sure to arise: Is this police entrapment? Courts have thrown out DUI convictions when the cops set up stings rights outside bars -- is this an example of the same type of thing?

But putting that legal debate aside for the moment, the teens finally realize they may be committing a crime, which worries one who already has a record: "Oh my God dog, what if we go to jail for this? This is grand theft auto."

Police told ABC News that the teens will be charged with auto burglary and unlawful taking of a motor vehicle.
