'Bait Car' Conversations with Cops Likely to Be Revealed, Could Help Alleged Car Thieves

As they say

The nitty-gritty details of the behind-the-scenes discussions between San Francisco police and truTV's Bait Car reality TV show will likely be revealed in court — soon.

On Thursday, San Francisco Superior Court Judge Andrew Cheng said he was granting a motion that will force prosecutors to hand over all of the conversations and information exchanged between the city and the show's producers regarding the on-camera sting that was conducted last year.

The ruling applies to the cases of four alleged car thieves who were busted on-camera while taking a car that was intentionally abandoned by undercover cops, often with the door open and the keys in the ignition.
