Youngstown police investigating break-in at Auto Zone on West Side

Published: Tue, December 8, 2009 @ 5:32 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Intruders broke two holes in the rear cement wall of the Auto Zone store at 129 S. Meridian Road at about 2:30 a.m. today and cut the copper water pipes in that wall, causing water to flood the business, police said.

Officers responding to the burglar alarm noticed a 1-by-1-foot hole and a nearby 2-foot-by-5-inch by 2-foot-by-5-inch hole in the wall, and police said the intruders entered through the larger hole.

The intruders also cut electrical wires in a metal box on the side of the building and pried open a wooden closet, where they cut the alarm wires and pulled an alarm battery from the wall. Police found no suspects inside the store.

The store manager said it did not appear that anything was taken from the store, but any loss will be reported after inventory.

This was a very serious effort in breaking into an Auto Zone parts store. Auto Zone is not a bank. It is not a jewelry store. It is not a gun shop. What could Auto Zone possibly have that is so valuable that criminals would go to this extreme??? An oil filter, a spark plug, or was it the snow scraper???
Or, was it a former employee that knew how cash was handled on a certain evening???

I thought all crime only happened on South Avenue near The Coconut Grove?
