Bike stolen from assigned storage space in laundry/storage units room. No lock on our unit. Bikes last seen on April 18th. Bike was stolen with another registered stolen bike under Aaron Kanfer, a Diamondback Menona dark blue hybrid with disk brakes. My suspicion is that a resident of the building noticed we had yet to get a lock for our bikes took them to sell, considering it’s a gated building. I bought this bike for my birthday two years ago with money I got for a promotion I worked my butt off for, feeling sad about this unfortunate situation. Thank you for your time.
