FORT MYERS, Fla. — A local barbershop was broken into early Tuesday morning.

Shattered glass marks the doorway of Angel of Kash Barbershop off of Palm Beach Blvd. in Fort Myers.

The store’s owner, Kash received a call around 6 am Tuesday morning.

“Somebody broke into the shop, I didn’t really know what to say, ” said Kash.

Fort Myers police say the suspect entered through a busted glass door, and that witnesses then saw someone carrying products out of the building.

“Yes some stuff was taken, but I work hard for it I could always replace it,” said Kash.

“I can’t take this into my own hands, but I hope the police do their job, ” said Kash.
