Incident Description: 
My bike was locked up using a u-lock and cable. While my u-lock wasn't found at the scene, I saw another u-lock that was left. It was fully locked, but cut. Neither my cable or u-lock was found, so I'm supposed they cut the u-lock and made off with the cable - disposing of the u-lock.
