I've lived in my current apartment for almost three years. I have kept the bike locked in the garage for that entire time.
I've kept my bike looked inside our common garage for the last 2.5 years. We have wall bike racks with cables attached to them. My bike was hanging from the wall rack with the cable attached to a u-lock. The u-lock was around the frame of the bike. The thief gained access to the garage, used bolt cutters to cut the cable, and then stole the bike with the u-lock still attached. I noticed the bike was missing on May 27th. I know it was there as recently as two weeks ago.
