Theft at local salon


BUCKHANNON — A local salon was broken into overnight Monday.

Mindy Holguin, the owner of Ultimate Image, discovered the main door to her shop open at 9 a.m. Tuesday, according to Lt. Doug Loudin with the Buckhannon Police Department.

“Someone broke in and stole the iPad she uses as a register and about $600 worth of cash and checks,” Loudin said.

The salon is located in the alley behind Ameriprise.

“It makes me angry to think someone felt like they deserved what I worked so hard for,” Holguin said. “You really don’t think things like this happen in your small town, but now I realize things really are changing and we all need to look out for each other.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the BPD at 304-472-5723, the crime tip line at 304-473-1001 or leave a tip online at www.buckhannonpolice.com.
