Stolen barber poles recovered

Posted by Geeky Swedes on August 25th, 2010

The recently-stolen barber pole at Ballard Barber Shop is once again hanging outside the decades-old business after an employee of a local antique shop heard that two poles in Ballard had been stolen.

The first pole was stolen at Smitty’s Barber Shop (5819 15th Ave NW) at the beginning of the month. Within a week, the pole at Ballard Barber Shop (6207 15th Ave NW) was also torn off the wall. “I had to put a new bolt in because I thought it was going to be gone forever,” Bob Morris, the owner of Ballard Barber Shop tells us. An employee at Smitty’s tells us their barber pole is damaged and they don’t know if it can be fixed.

Morris says an employee of Seattle Antiques Market heard the story on the radio and wondered if the two poles at the store were the ones in question. We spoke to the owner of Seattle Antiques this morning who tells us as soon as his employee brought it up, they immediately called the north precinct. After a bit of investigation, it turns out the two poles did indeed come from the Ballard businesses.

According to our news partners, the Seattle Times, a woman was arrested for the crimes. Seattle City Attorney’s Office hasn’t received the necessary paperwork from the police, so we don’t know if she will face charges. (Thanks Jon for the tip!)

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    Some people need them to consolidate debt, finance a home project such as a
    transformming or addition, and some to start up a new small enterprise.
    The interest rates can vary considerably and even if it is just a fraction it can add a good deal
    onto the loan when taking it out over several years.

    If you are thinking about applying for a crsdit card to help you deasl with your financial fix,
    keep in mind that it could take weeks to get approlved and
    get your card in the mail.
