Description
Even though it was bought brand new more than 6 years ago, there were no dent or scratch marks on the bike and it looked relatively new.
Stolen from COBURG, VIC on 25 July 2021
Front Yard - Private Residence
Request
I woke up late on Sunday 25 July 2021 around noon to notice that my road bike was gone (stolen) from the stand right outside by townhouse unit. It was locked using a Kryptonite key cable lock and was kept under a weatherproof cover on the bike stand in my front yard but that didn't help. It was safe and sound there for the last 6 months or so but caught someone's attention during this lockdown. I checked with my neighbours who had not heard or seen anything. I contacted the manager of the apartment building from across the road to check in case any camera caught some suspicious activity. I also submitted an online report to the Victoria Police. In terms of the timing of the incident, the last time I remember seeing my bike parked on the stand was 5pm on Saturday 24 July 2021 when I went out for a run. The next day Sunday 25 July 2021 around 12.15pm was when I noticed that the bike was gone. Since it was locked and under a weatherproof cover all of which were gone, I believe it would have happened in the dark either late night Saturday or early morning Sunday. It'd have been too noticeable otherwise given so many people visit the grocery store right across the street.
