stolen bike

Is this a common tactic? Keep your eyes peeled for this one if you can.

“Dear PoPville,

Basically, my bike got stolen and I’d love to get it back, if possible.

I work a part time job at The Coupe on the weekends. On Sunday, I biked to The Coupe to start my shift. The bike rack was full, so I locked (using a U Lock) my bike to the northeast stop sign of Monroe and Park Rd, across the street from The Coupe. When my shift was ended, I found another bike (a gray Fuji Silhouette) locked to mine. I checked, and the Fuji didn’t belong to anyone at The Coupe, so I decided to walk home, hoping that the owner would unlock their bike by the next day.

I worked all day Monday at my full-time job, and returned to Monroe and Park to check on my bike only to find it gone. There was no sign of my bike or the gray Fuji or either bike lock. I filed a police report and registered my stolen bike on bikeindex.org.”
