Which type of area was your bike stolen from?:
Porch or yard.
How long was the bike locked in this location?:
Bike was stolen from the wooden railing of my unit's back porch (2nd floor), which is only accessible through two gated, locked entrances (one facing the alley, one facing the walkway to the main street). I had locked the bike to the porch rail overnight, and didn't discover it was missing until approximately noon. The wooden rail had been cut through. I suspect it was stolen sometime between 9:30 - 10:30am, because I recall hearing a noise outside around that time, but had assumed it was coming from a neighbor's unit or nearby building.
