Incident Description: 
The garage door was open for about 30 minutes while we did yard work so that we could easily throw yard waste into the trash cans in alley. My bike was leaning against the garage wall near the front of the garage. We closed the garage door after the yard work. Later that day, I realized the bike was gone. They had taken the helmet off the handlebars and left it on the floor of the garage. They also left my husband's bike. I believe someone walked by and rode it away.
