Incident Description

Which type of area was your bike stolen from?: 
Garage or enclosed parking area.
How long was the bike locked in this location?: 
Always kept in garage, had been locked without being used for approximately 12 days
Incident Description: 
This occurred in a condo garage with my car parked in front of my bike rack and additional bikes; and my car sits between two large SUVs that makes it more difficult to get my bike in and out. There is a gate to enter the garage area and then a standard garage door to enter the parking area. Bike was locked and secure when I entered the garage to park my car on Dec. 19 at 1:30am; when I returned to the garage on Dec. 19 at 12pm, the bike was no longer there and the lock was cut and placed to look like nothing had been tampered with. My building's maintenance guy is just as perplexed as I am about how the theft occurred in what is supposed to be a secure space.
