Incident Description: 
Thieves broke into locked 6-car condo garage sometime Sunday night or early Monday; cut the cable on the trike lock, lifted trike over cars and carried it out the overhead garage door to the alley. They had climbed over a 6-ft fence to get access to the side (people) door of the garage; forced that open. Manually released the overhead (car) garage door to remove the trike. Ignored other bikes in the garage or any other perceived valuables except they did take a motorcycle lift. They also got into the storage rooms in the basement and picked a lock to steal someone's work tools. (Photo is same model & color trike but without all the accessories that mine had.)
