Barber hopes to avert crime with alarm
COTTAGE LAKE--Dave Brown, who runs Dave's Barber Styling and Tanning at Cottage Lake, is installing an alarm system because of a break-in late last year and rock thrown through a window recently. Brown, who's been at his current location in the 19200 block of Woodinville-Duvall Road for eight months, said $2,300 in damage occurred in the November incident, including broken mirrors, cut phone and television cords, and paint poured all over a tanning bed. Two pairs of clippers and a sign reading "Dave's Family Hair Care" were stolen as well. Over the Super Bowl weekend, unknown parties tossed a rock through his window also. The barber who's been on the Eastside for 22 years wants the crimes solved and hopes somebody has seen his sign.
