Incident Description

Which type of area was your bike stolen from?: 
Porch or yard.
How long was the bike locked in this location?: 
24 hours
Incident Description: 
The bike was left on a secluded corner back porch, with locking skewers and the front wheel locked to the frame but not to anything else (I know, I know, laziness). I left it in place the night before and did not go to ride it until early evening the next day so the theft could have happened any time over night or during the day. Not much else is kept on the porch but nothing else was taken and there was no sign of attempted entry into the apartment.
