Augusta-area barber shop broken into for 5th time

The Associated Press

MANCHESTER, Maine — The owner of a Manchester barber shop says his business has been broken into for the fifth time in the past three months.

Dana Geneseo says he’s installed a video camera, alarm system and even a windowless door at Dana’s Barber Shop since the first break-in on Sept. 2, but that didn’t stop someone from trying to rob the store again on Tuesday.

Video surveillance shows someone rooting around the store for about two minutes before leaving empty handed.

Geneseo tells the Kennebec Journal that he learned his lesson after the first break when a 40-inch flat screen television and about $1,000 in cash was stolen.

He no longer keeps anything of value in the shop overnight, not even petty change.

Police are investigating but don’t have a suspect.
