Were they garage break-ins? Or residences?

I think my neighbor said that they were garage break-ins.

I wonder if it's the same people who've been bugging us up here in SW Minneapolis. We had a big rash of them over the summer. Almost exclusively bicycle thefts, although a few cars lost their spare change or GPS units.

Our garage (76th and Harriet) was broken into on Sat. night - they 'stole' my bike but then left it in the driveway. We figured it was a group of roving teenagers being, well, teenagers.

Ha! That's kind of funny that the bike just made it to the driveway. But, even so, it's annoying.
