Other situation, please describe below.
How long was the bike locked in this location?:
The bike was taken from the Illinois Institute of Technology campus, at the south side of the Life Sciences building. I parked the bike here around 9:50 AM, and by 4:15 PM the bike was gone. The bike lock was missing, which may mean the thief had a master key for the brand. I'm a large person (6'5" tall) and the bike is large as well. Recovery Notes: Recovered. It was at the Swap-O-Rama flea market at 4100 S Ashland Ave. I had given a statement and was going to get a report number today, but we've fortunately resolved the issue. The lights were taken but everything else is still in place.
