Thanks to Brenda for the tip. Seattle Police investigated a burglary at Advance Auto Parts (4505 38th SW) early today. SPD says they investigated a reported alarm around 5 am and found someone had pried open the back door to get inside. They weren’t able to reach the store’s owner/management at the time so they secured the door after confirming the burglar(s) were gone.

    I think their front door still has plywood from the last break in around 6 months ago.

    I have a feeling the break in is more tied to the UPS drop off point there.I had a small, very expensive, very important package with signature required attempted to be delivered to my home last week. I was available to accept the package but next thing I know I get a message saying my package is now being delivered to ADVANCED AUTO PARTS.at least I can pick it up there the next day, but it’s adding an unnecessary handoff to a 3rd party who assumes liability.
