Incident Description

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?: 
2 hours
Incident Description: 
The lock was a combination of cable and newer u-lock. The cable went through the front tire, around a tree, and through the frame. It was connected to the u-lock which went through the back tire and frame. When I went outside only a portion of the cable was left. It appears that the cable was burned through and the thief took the bike elsewhere to remove the lock from the rear tire.
