A man opened our front gate (locked) and proceeded around side of building to back stairway area. Two bikes were locked - one female bike with a solid lock and the men's with a cable and padlock. The man cut the cable and exited out the front entrance in broad daylight. We have security camera footage and you can clearly see his face. He is an below average in height (about 5/6") man with shaved head and small mustache - either light skin African American or Hispanic. He was wearing a silver/grey colored puff vest; a navy blue sweatshirt under that; and gloves. I can supply the camera footage if anyone wants it.
