Three suspects were detained Saturday during a bait package sting conducted by the Sacramento Police Department, intended to catch would-be porch pirates attempting to steal packages from doorsteps.

Police detained one woman early Saturday after being alerted to a bait package "activation" on the 3000 block of 60th Street.

"Additional follow up was completed related to the bait package theft and other possible thefts in the area," authorities said.

Another bait package theft near the 6700 block of 4th Avenue led to two suspect being detained and cited for theft and possession of stolen property.
