Today, I rode my newly-purchased bicycle to Lowe's to look at flooring and back splashes for our upcoming remodel. Upon leaving the store, I found out that my bicycle had been stolen by someone who had bought a hacksaw from that store while I was shopping. They left the receipt to mock me. FML

he's an idiot. The receipts have time stamps. Talk to the staff, identify who bought a hacksaw around that time and done

Did they pay with card? That can be used to find them.

No it cant, companies are not allowed by law to keep card numbers

That's horrible, innovative but horrible. I'm sure Lowes has cameras that could help as well as cashiers who remember who bought a hacksaw during that time.

Inside cameras that face the registers!!!

Not only that, every single Home depot is going to have Camera's watching the registers. Shit even if he hadn't left the receipt, just knowing he bought a Hacksaw there would make it pretty easy to track down. The problem arises from the fact that police don't really go after petty thieves unless they steal from businesses.

You must be hacked off! Surely, you *saw* the place was crawling with Lowe-lifes!

you punny bastard

As others have said, timestamp on the receipt and cameras in the store. File a police report!

I work at Lowes. Ask to speak with the manager or Loss Prevention. They have cameras and will be able to take still photos for you so you can give them to the cops. Funny enough I'm writing this comment while at work.

Technically you are still doing your job then.

I work at lowes too, for the corporate office, and I was thinking the exact same thing.

If lowes is anything like Walmart, they won't give you anything because it wasn't stolen from them and privacy laws won't protect you.

@19 OP parked the bike on their terrain and also locked it. They will need to support OP, and if they don't, he/she can go to the police. If they decide to investigate at the store, they'll be forced to help. :)

They can use the receipt to figure out who made the purchase, though you will also need to get the police involved.

Is there security cameras outside where the bike was parked? Call the cops and have them ask Lowes for the footage

The police should be able to do something with the time stamp of the cash register and the corresponding cctv footage.
