Rugs, mop reported taken from business
A Cherokee Place business reported Tuesday the theft of nearly $990 in items.
According to a Cartersville police report, the items taken from Pure Beauty Salon include four floor rugs and an industrial-sized mop. The rugs were taken about two months ago after an employee cleaned the rugs and placed them outside the business, while the mop was taken Monday, also from outside the business.
A person associated with the business told police that for the last two months there had been an increase in people, possibly homeless, in the area asking for money.
