Living room ransacked in West Detroit burglary
DETROIT – The owner of hair salon Amor Natural Way said thieves broke into his hair salon in western Detroit on Tuesday night.
Amor Leak thought his business was secure because it is closed with barbed wire on top. So how did they get in and out? She said they jumped over the door, which is shorter, and took just about everything.
âI was coming to meet the painter to finish my sign on my living room,â Leak said.
Amor Leak said she has just completed the final touches on her new salon, Amor Natural Way Hair Salon, located on Grand River Avenue. She closed shop Tuesday night, but when she came back Wednesday morning, she knew something was wrong.
“I saw that the air conditioning I had just installed in that window was not there like the day before,” Leak said. âI walked in and my doors were unlocked, left unlocked and the stylist is still locking. I came to discover my living room in ruins. Everything was thrown around, drawers pulled out and thrown away.
Amor showed us photos of the damage, his new shop was destroyed and everything was gone.
âThe TV, the big flat screen was there and the refrigerator was in the back behind the bathroom,â Leak said of the damage. “It’s broken now because they tore it up and took it all out.”
But that’s not all the burglars did.
âThey used the bathroom. They did a number two and then they stuffed it with paper towels, not toilet paper and they stole the plunger, âLeak said. âThey didn’t rinse him. Then I took the piston, it’s the strangest thing.
Leak now has this message for those behind it all: âStop taking from your own people. I am a melancholy young woman who is just looking to build and start something to pass on to my son and his children.
Amor said what’s even more frustrating about this situation is that she has already hired a security company to install a security system next week.
Detroit Police are investigating.
