That’s where thieves smashed the windows of a barber shop and a dental office.

A television was taken from one of the businesses, along with various other items, according to police.

Police say that two beauty supply stores, including a wig shop, and another dental office were targeted around 1 a.m. Tuesday.

Thousands of dollars worth of wigs were taken from Jin’s Wig and Salon, and computer equipment worth thousands was taken from Cosmo Prof Salon Center.

The estimated value of the items taken from Russell Walls Dentistry was not immediately clear.

Investigators are now trying to determine if the two scenes are related. Anyone with information about the burglaries is asked to contact police.
