"It was locked with a pretty serious cable lock, which they cut pretty
cleanly somehow"

cable locks are generally ranked as the lowest form of lock you can
buy. I've seen videos of people clipping through even thick ones with $20
bolt cutters in a few seconds.

 I hope you get your bike back but next time invest in a good u-lock and
maybe a chain lock if you like the flexibility.
