How long was the bike locked in this location?:
I was at the UIC health sciences library and I was studying a street view window. I looked up and saw a guy walking west on Polk street with a bike on his shoulder and upon closer inspection I realized it was my bike. My bike was actually locked up right across the street and I looked over to the bike rack it was locked too and it was gone. By the time I ran out of the library and down the street I couldn't find the guy or my bike! I called the campus PD and they immediately searched the streets, but to no avail. The bike rack had clear signs of a cutting tool used to cut the lock.
