On Tuesday, September 6th, I noticed that my bike was not in my garage when I was leaving for work at 7:40 am. It had previously been in the garage when I was last in there on Saturday, September 7th at 1 pm. I asked my roommate if she moved it, and she said no. She said that she noticed that the garage was open at 3:30 pm on Sunday, September 8th. However, since we both always wait until the garage door is closed due to the high value of my bike, she assumed she accidentally clicked it open when she was walking to the garage from our apartment. She confirms that the garage door was closed as of Saturday evening. Our garage is a private, two-car garage. The only people with access are my roommate, maintenance staff, and me. All of them say they have not seen the bike. There is a small opening at the top of our garage. It is possible to use a long device to pull the cord and open it manually. There are multiple cameras in the alley that face our garage that have signs indicating 24 hour surveillance, but our property owner does not own any of them himself.
