More stuff you need to watch out for is them popping your tire, taking the front wheel (don't use quick release axles) or adding an additional lock to your bike. Those are all attempts in keeping your bike there longer for the right tools to be brought to properly steal it. They hope you might even walk home leaving it there for hours, giving them plenty of time. If you ever come out of the store and someone put a lock on your bike, call the police and keep it in eyesight.
