The last time I saw my bike was on the 13th, I left the state that afternoon and did not return until the 19th. On the morning of the 20th I left the apartment at about 9:30 and when I did I saw that some one had cut the lock and taken my bike. I had my bike in an alcove outside of the back door secured to a large metal pipe with a combination cable lock. There is no way to see it from the alley, the only way to see it is to enter a narrow unlit passage tucked into the side of the garage. Whoever took it must have either seen me ride it home one day and targeted me specifically or been trying to get into the building. My bike is distinctive because I needed to replace the pedals, normally the pedal can fold in half to allow it to fold up easier but my bike had standard petals that do not fold. I also had a black phone holder attached to the handle bars with an elastic band. Someone also broke into a car in the parking lot on the night of the 19th.
