Locked to street sign.
How was the bike locked?:
Locked through front wheel and frame to object.
Which type of area was your bike stolen from?:
Sidewalk in front of an open business.
How long was the bike locked in this location?:
I got to work at 10:30AM. I locked up to the only available position on near my office. I was locked up just in front of the building at 351 West Hubbard. When I came out of work I didn't see my bike and noticed that the post it was attached too had been compromised. I assume the thief(s) uprooted the sign and walked off with the bike. I am going to visit security when it opens tomorrow morning to take a look at the footage and at least see who did it.
