Around 3 or 4 pm on Monday, October 19, 2020, I put my bike in my building’s basement as usual. To get to the basement, you have to go through a locked gate and then through the locked basement door. Presumably only residents of the building have a key to the gate and basement door. Other residents store their bikes in the basement, as well. The next day, at 4 pm, I went to the basement to get my bike to ride it to work. As I approached the gate, I noticed in the alley that a white van was parked. There appeared to be maintenance men doing something near our building. When I went into the basement, I saw my bike was gone. There were two other bikes in the basement: one bike sitting intact and another bike had its wheels taken off.
This bike was recovered:
