Incident Description: 
I arrived home at 1 AM and saw my garage was closed. The next morning we woke up at 7:30 AM and saw the garage door was open. Our gate to our yard was open so it is obvious that somebody walked in through the alley open the back window to our garage cut the lock open the garage door and likely had a friend left her into a truck. ( there are cigarettes on the ground of our garage as if they fell out of someone's shirt pocket). We live in a very quiet area of the city so I am fairly certain that this was a planned theft. The gates to our yard were open about a week ago which I did not think much of, but I am guessing they were scoping out the situation.

I've been storing my bike, along with two roommates' bikes, in a sunroom area in the back of our apartment since we moved in over a year ago. Around 11:30 p.m. July 6, all bikes were there, but by 8 a.m. July 7, all were gone. Not sure how they got in as we all habitually lock the back door to our building. Bikes were in a locked room, but not locked to anything inside the room. Appears they wheeled the bikes out to the back area between us and the coach house, lifted bikes over our fence into neighbors' yard (as that's where our helmets were found), and exited through the back alley. They ditched one of my roommate's bikes in the alley a few houses west of us, but took the other two.

Incident Description: 
Was locked outside of Capital Grille on 633 N St. Clair St., near Michigan Ave and Ohio. It is a busy street, and it was daylight. I was on the corner, less than 20 ft away with my back to my bike, doing a peaceful protest against the restaurant for less than 1 hour. I think the car valet staff may have been involved because when I first arrived, he came up next to me and was chatty, asked me if I was going to lock my bike (and asked about the weather, etc). It really struck me as a strange interaction, and I told the other protesters about it when they arrived. Unfortunately, I didn't move my bike, even though I was suspicious. Considering I was there for less than an hour and it was taken from right behind my back, it seems like he was involved. I'm just freaking out right now and can't stop crying. I'm going home to find my serial number so I can call the police and file a report. Please help if you can!
