Tualatin police shut down the Bridgeport Village shopping complex for three hours Tuesday morning after employees at the Apple Store found a message inscribed on a store window and an accompanying suspicious package.

Sgt. Nate Cooper of the Tualatin Police Department said someone had written on the front window, "Timmy, close the back door," possibly a reference to Apple CEO Tim Cook. An arrow pointed down to a bag left outside the store, which was closed and locked because of the COVID-19 pandemic but had employees working in the back.
