What was the bike locked to?:
Locked to bike rack.
How was the bike locked?:
Locked through front wheel and frame to object.
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?:
Right in front of Block 37, corner of N State and E Washington. Bike unattended for less than 2 hours. On the E Washington side, the bolts on the bike rack closest to the trash (upon closer inspection) are clearly set to be removed, I'm guessing they removed them and pulled the lock through. The lock goes through both the bike frame and front wheel, it's a pretty heavy duty lock so they likely pulled out the whole thing. All you need to do to catch these guys is have someone camp out at that corner watching for a nice bike to be left on that bike rack.
