They broke into our condominium’s underground garage, prying the impenetrable-looking outside door with a crowbar. Then they carried cutting tools to the bicycle storage area. As an extra security measure, when my wife and I bought our condominium, we had an extra storage cage built within the locked storage area. It sounds like overkill, right?
Then we locked our bikes to a steel bracket, bolted to the ground. In essence, we locked our bikes within a cage, which was locked inside a cage, which was locked inside the condominium’s underground parking garage. But thieves still broke in. They stole my wife’s bike and two others that night. They stole my own locked bike several months before.
