JoAnn Prince, co-owner of Great Northern Hair Co., said someone broke in to her store about 4:30 a.m. and stole $7,300 worth of jewelry. Prince said the burglar (or .... burglars) entered the store someone who had been in the by breaking a window behind the building. She said they took the jewelry and $47 from the cash register. "I think this was done by store before. They knew what we had," Prince said. She said the size of the footprints at the scene and the way the person entered the store leci her to believe the burglary was carried out by a young adult. "This was somebody who was fairly agile and knew what they were doing," Prince said. "The window is 6 feet off the ground. And once they were inside, they moved a display rack in front of the door so no one could see inside." Prince and her daughter, co-owner Grace Ann Mason, moved the business to its current location next to Papa's Donuts in June 2013.
