Suddenly, it's war on Colorado nail salons
Earlier today, we told you about burglars wanted for nine attempted or actual robberies committed in Aurora over a seven-hour period between Sunday night and Monday morning, most of them targeting nail and hair salons. Now, the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office reveals that another gaggle of businesses was hit around 2:17 a.m. today, and once again, salons were on the hit list (along with a couple of cleaning companies). The amount of money swiped is small -- approximately $140 -- but the pain in the neck is intense. Betcha the owners would like to see the responsible parties get nailed.
Look below for the ACSO report:
ARAPAHOE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE
On September 9, 2009, at approximately 2:17 a.m. Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to the 7400 block of East Arapahoe Road on the report of an alarm. Upon their arrival, deputies determined that the front door of the business had been shattered. This information was aired to other Sheriff's deputies, as well as to the surrounding area law enforcement agencies. Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office Deputies immediately began to check surrounding businesses and located six others with similar damage.
It appears the suspects targeted money from the cash drawers. No other items from any of the victimized businesses seem to have disturbed.
The businesses located in Centennial are as follows:
Solon du Soleil, 7475 E. Arapahoe Road #2
Darque Tan, 8006 E. Arapahoe Road
United Nails, 8586 E. Arapahoe Road
Snappy Nails, 11435 E. Briarwood Road
Starchy's Cleaners, 12201 E. Arapahoe Road
Salon Aspen, 15438 E. Orchard Road
One business was located in the Town of Foxfield:
Foxfield Professional Cleaners, 16350 E. Arapahoe Road
At this time the total monetary loss from the locations where the responsible party has been in contact with deputies is $140. Deputies have been unable to talk with three of the businesses' responsible parties to determine their potential losses. Investigation is ongoing at this time.
