Incident Description: 
The bike was stole in front of the 48th Ward Office at 5533 N Broadway. The lock was only through the front tire. The 5' 6" white male who looked to be in his late 40s did a quick release of the front tire, leaving it hanging by the lock on the bike rack. I have the lock and front tire in my possession. The thief then biked away North on Broadway, holding my bike (frame and back tire).
