Bicycle was in the common area of our condo basement, unlocked with several other unlocked bicycles as it has been for several years. There must have been a short period of time where someone was moving stuff out of the basement where both basement door and gangway gate were unlocked & perhaps a quick opportunity theft by someone passing by the alley.
