How long was the bike locked in this location?:
The bike was kept on a bike rack but not locked. The rack was inside a gated yard of our apartment building. Someone sneaked into the yard and stole the bike between 12pm-2pm. When I walked into the building, a person entered the yard behind me who I suspect did not belong to our building and might have stolen it, immediately after I kept the bike at 12:00 pm.
