Incident Description

Other situation, please describe below.
How long was the bike locked in this location?: 
5 hours
Incident Description: 
I locked my bicycle to the fence near the stairs and bike racks inside the turnstiles at the Logan Square CTA Blue Line stop between 8:30am and 9:00am on Monday, July 11. When I returned to the station around 6:45 pm, the bicycle was no longer there. There was no sign of the lock or my helmet that I had left hanging from the handlebars. I called CTA at 1-888-YOUR-CTA thinking the bicycle may have been removed by CTA employees because it was locked to the fence and not the bike racks (they were all full due to the crazy rain storm that morning). The woman I spoke to said that CTA does not remove bicycles from the fence and that it had likely been stolen.
