Other situation, please describe below.
How long was the bike locked in this location?:
Bike was stashed in front east lobby of Jewel Food Store at 4660 W. Irving Park Rd., while owner did 15-20 minutes of shopping, and its rear basked contained a bag full of groceries newly purchased from a different store, tied down with red, hooked, bungie cords. Owner had been doing this a couple of times a week for some seven years without incident, until today. The bike was gone when the owner finished shopping and entered the lobby. When I reported the theft to the store, the customer service representative called the police, handed me the telephone receiver, and I tele-filed a police report. I also spoke two assistant managers later today, but no one mentioned a word about the existence of video recordings, which surely exist. I just hope that they won't be erased.
