SHARE More than 75 area hair and nail salons burglarized in last 6 months

Northbrook police are asking for the public’s help finding suspects believed to be involved in burglaries at more than 75 hair and nail salons across the area over the last six months.

Salons in Chicago and more than 30 suburbs, including Northbrook, Evanston, Naperville and Batavia, have been targeted since August, according to Northbrook police.

Burglaries have happened on every day of the week, but usually in the evening hours. Police believe the suspects watch as the business closes, then shatter the glass door near the lock using a fist or bat. They take cash, jewelry and sometimes electronics.

The suspects are described as white males in their late teens to early 20s with average builds, police said. They are using a dark four-door, mid-size car.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for tips leading to an arrest. Anyone with information should call (800) 535-7867 and may remain anonymous.
