New Image Hair & Nails was broken into overnight (Monday/Tuesday 28 July).

UPDATE – Thursday 30 July 2015

A Southport beauty salon has been broken into, with thieves taking tills and a quantity of cash.

The burglary at New Image, on Hesketh Drive,was discovered on Tuesday (28 July) after happening overnight.

Officers were called at around 9.50am, following a report that offenders had gained entry to the premises by forcing entry to a rear window while the business was closed between 6pm on Monday, 27 July and 9.30am on Tuesday 28 July.

Once inside, the offenders made an untidy search, taking cash tills, hairdryers, a tip box, various products and a quantity of cash, before making off through a rear window.

Officers attended the scene and a search of the area was carried out. Crime scene investigators have forensically examined the building and CCTV from the business and surrounding area is being located.

A full investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident is continuing.

Neighbourhood Inspector Michael Barrett said: “This is a small, independent local business and the owner is understandably devastated that it has been targeted.

“It’s shameful that there are people who think it is acceptable to destroy other people’s hard work and enterprise for their own gain and we are determined to bring those responsible before the courts.

“I would appeal to people who may have seen anything suspicious around Hesketh Drive overnight on Monday to get in touch with us as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information can call Merseyside Police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
