Thieves targeting Athens, TN hair and nail salons

ATHENS, Tenn. - Hair and nail salons are a recent target by burglars in Athens, and police are asking for the public's help tracking down the suspects. Police think the thieves cased out the salons first, throwing rocks or bricks through the windows to break in. But in most cases, they didn't get away with much.

The burglaries happened last Tuesday evening after closing time, and all were within 1.5 miles of each other. Investigators believe the same culprits are behind it.

"Shambles" was how Jeanne Willis described the condition of her salon on Wednesday morning.
