Crooks targeting Great Clips Hair salons in Kansas City area

OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) -

Since June, burglars have broken into 11 Great Clips Hair salons in the Kansas City area with most of the stores in Johnson County.

Thieves smashed through the windows at the Great Clips at 95th and Quivira. This occurred overnight from late Thursday through early Friday. The call came in at 2:30 a.m. Friday. A small amount of cash was taken. No alarm was set off.

Police believe the same crooks tried to break into the Great Clips at 5012 Roe in Roeland Park, but were unable to gain entry.

In addition, stores in Kansas City and Kansas City, KS, have been targeted.

"I think it's crazy. Who would want to break into Great Clips," said customer David Wilson. "What are you going to steal? Clippers? It really doesn't make any sense."

Police also don't have any definitive answers.

"The criminal element is like a normal person. They become comfortable and familiar with something and they stick to it," Officer Michelle Koos said.

If you have any information, call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
