WASHINGTON – Burglars have broken into 14 businesses in the Woodbridge and Dumfries areas of Virginia.
Now the Prince William County Police Department is asking for the public’s help to solve the cases that occurred between Friday, Aug. 16, and Sunday, Aug. 18.
Of the 14 businesses, 11 are hair and nail salons, two are dry cleaners and one is a Dairy Queen.
Police describe most of the businesses as mom-and-pop shops, where the odds of finding cash on hand are higher.
Police on Thursday released two surveillance videos from a Hair Cuttery on Waterway Drive in Montclair that was struck by thieves.
The thieves broke the glass front door of the salon between 9 p.m. Aug. 15 and 3:23 a.m. Aug. 16.
The suspects in the Hair Cuttery break-in are both male, but their races and ages are unknown.
Police say one person is 5-foot-10 and about 140 pounds. The other is 5-foot-6 and 160 pounds.
Police believe the burglaries and attempted burglaries may be connected.
