I trust the owner/manager 100%, but he has gotten two new employees over the past few months. The one I have gotten to know and tust, the oterh has only been there 2 weeks. I tend to agree that something is "fishy" but I don't know that there is anything I can do about it. The officer who took the report said there is no sign of a forced entry (no slimjim marks) and he said that it looks like it was done by somebody with access to the key. Now they thing is the shop leaves keys sitting on the desk and anybody could have walked in, grabbed the key and walked out. Am I suspicious of the shop? Yes, but I hate feeling this way, they do good work at a good price, are convenient and I work with the owners little sister.
