SEATTLE - The FBI and U.S. Postal Inspector Police are involved in a major investigation at a home in Seattle.

Since Sunday evening, agents and officers have been combing for clues and gathering evidence at a home on Des Moines Memorial Drive South.

A few agents put on respirators as they sifted through evidence and entered the house.

The U.S. Postal Inspector's Office would not comment other than to say that, "there's a lot of moving parts," and that they're also working with the U.S. Attorney's office.

Neighbors said a young couple and their two young children just moved in eight months ago.

“They had cameras all over. They even had cameras at the mailbox,” said Neighbor Shelley Pealver. “They take pictures of who's coming into mailbox, who's not. I thought that was strange.”

Neighbors said there were other red flags.

“Then deliveries started coming from Amazon -- 4 to 5 times a day from Amazon,” said Peavler. “I saw Amazon trucks. I saw Fedex trucks. I saw personal cars delivering to them. I assume those are Amazon employees delivering in their own vehicles. USPS has been there.”

No word if anyone has been arrested yet.

The FBI, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, and the U.S. Attorney’s office said they are not commenting on the investigation at this time.
