Salon robbed of cash and equipment
7:30am Tuesday 15th October 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
A HAIRDRESSING salon has become the latest target in a wave of burglaries plaguing a town.
Crooks forced their way into Back 2 Front on Dovercourt High Street between the shop closing on Wednesday October 2 and opening on Thursday October 3.
They entered via a side window, removing a whole pane of glass before taking £700 worth of equipment including hair straighteners and clippers as well as a similar amount of cash.
Hairdresser Keeley Palmer, who works at the salon was gutted that thieves had targeted the store.
“It is not nice at all to know somebody has been in here. This is our place of work and you would like to think it is safe.
“There is lots of this around though and I think it is definitely getting worse."
