A salon in Herne Bay was broken into by thieves who then made away with hairdressing equipment that’s valued at several thousand pounds. The salon, Salon 123, is located in the High Street, and police were called in on Sunday after it was noticed that the glass on the front door had been cut open. Various equipment including straighteners were taken by the thieves who stole goods worth around £2,000. There was also a charity box that was being used to collect money for the Christmas lights in town and it had around £200 in it and this too was stolen by the thieves.
The theft occurred at some point between Saturday night and the following morning according to Sally Moore, the owner of the salon. She added that the thieves had climbed in through a hole that they had cut in the glass on the front door. She also stated that one of the most annoying things was the fact that the thieves had also stolen the money to be used for the town’s Christmas lights. She has spoken to a number of customers about the theft and many have said that targeting a small business wasn’t a good move by the thieves.
According to a spokesperson for the police, they are now working with owners of salons in the area and making enquiries with regard to the incident.
