Athens-Clarke County police say Mid-Atlantic Clothing Recycling had been experiencing thefts of clothing from its collection bin at Georgia Square Mall.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports that a company manager concealed the GPS device inside the bear, placed it in a bag of clothing and tossed it into the collection bin.
