    I believe this bike is parked on 46th avSw in the 7000 block .  Between Frontenac and Myrtle.

      I replied earlier this morning, but don’t see my post.Thank you Wendell Hoyt, for your posting. My husband, the owner of the bike is a recent amputee so my boss went to retrieve the bike, with me in tow driving his car. The ignition was completed removed, so the 300 lb bike had to be manually pushed back to it’s rightful home, which meant hauling it back up Frontenac.  Best boss ever!!

        I learned later that our neighbor encountered a suspicious person at 5am Tuesday trying to start the bike and spoke to him and was soon gone. Neighbor will return from a short trip Saturday night if you want more info

     Regarding the break-in: saw in the Ring app a similar sounding break-in in the Alki area. The police had apparently told them it was one of 5 break-ins in “the area”, which I’m wondering means West Seattle since it looks like this one was in Gatewood.

Sorry, comment time is over.
