Cameras caught him walking from elevator through 2nd floor lobby to bike area, returning in 5 minutes with my bike, padlock and cable were either in his large dark backpack or in the saddle bag. He paused to pull his cap over his face on his way out. Security guy was really nice about searching data base. there's more film from 1st floor entrance, probably head-on shot. With any luck, police will get his face.
