Incident Description

Which type of area was your bike stolen from?: 
Garage or enclosed parking area.
How long was the bike locked in this location?: 
Bike was locked in a secured private garage for several months
Incident Description: 
Someone broke into the secured garage at 720 N. Larrabee and stole a Trek Lexa SL C bike. The bike was locked to a bike rack located in a parking spot with 2 locks on it (a snake and kryptonite lock). The snake lock was cut and the kryptonite lock was only secured to the front wheel, so the robber unattached the front wheel in order to steal the bike. They then stole the front tire of another bike locked on the rack in order to ride/roll the bike out. Unfortunately I don’t have a good timeline for when this theft occurred. I haven’t been down to the garage in roughly a month, so it could have occurred anytime over that period. I noticed the theft on November 19, 2017.
