Downtown businesses burglarized over the weekend

Hair care, massage therapy products among items stolen

Several downtown Pleasanton businesses were broken into sometime between late Saturday afternoon and early Sunday morning, resulting in thousands of dollars of stolen property.

An unknown person or people drilled the front door locks out of three office suites in the same building at 610 Main St. between 4:30 p.m. Saturday and 8:50 a.m. Sunday, according to the Pleasanton Police Department.

Those responsible entered two of the businesses -- Healthy Necessity Massage and the massage therapy office of Wanda Schneider -- and took $5 in cash and an undetermined amount of therapy products. Neighboring Allure Skin Care had its lock damaged but no entry was made.

In related incidents, an unknown burglar or burglars kicked open doors to two additional nearby businesses. Stolen items included $5300 worth of shears, clippers and other hair-cutting equipment from Simply Chic at 100 West Angela St., and a $600 purse along with $60 in cash was taken from Athena Skin Care at 215 Division St.

The latter burglaries happened between 2:40 p.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. Sunday and between 1:30-10 a.m. Sunday, respectively.

As of late Tuesday, no arrests had been made or suspect description released. Pleasanton police Sgt. Larry Cox, the investigations supervisor, said the investigation was still in its preliminary stages.
