I locked my bike outside of LG's bar on Wells Street in Old Town and sat at an outdoor table at the patio with my bike no more than 20 feet from me. I ordered a drink and noticed my bike was missing before my drink even arrived. The Manager at the bar reviewed the security footage and can see a white male wearing a black t-shirt and black bike helmet ride up on a bike to the area where I locked my bike. He hangs around for a few minutes and then rides off on the bike he approached on. A few minutes later he returned on foot and rode away on my white Novara bike. When the manager came over to tell us what was on the tape, my husband remembers seeing the man and told us he thought it was strange that he was hanging out there but it was a busy night with lots of people around so he didn't continue to watch him. I have the U-lock and cut cable in my possession.
