Both of these reports came in within the past few hours, both from Gatewood:

The plate started with C957. No police report # yet.

CAR BREAK-IN: A reader reports a car prowl in the 4300 block of SW Orchard. Preliminary tracking # from SPD online eport: T19002926.

    Those batteries always seemed like big juicy targets, equivalents sell for 2-300 bucks. Frankly I’d rather burglars steal batteries off bikeshare bikes than copper wire from streetlights.

    Unbelievable! Terrible people taking advantage of the rest of us. Get a job!

    I’m surprised the batteries are not locked down better to the frame.

    I’m struggling to find a reason to care about someone messing with Lime Bikes.

Sorry, comment time is over.
