Whooee! Those North Chicago cops certainly have been busy the last few days.
The latest police presence in the city was a raid at Stack's House of Style the other day. Cops allegedly were looking for drugs, although no narcotics were found even after police trashed the beauty shop. However, a police spokesman said "evidence" was removed from the salon at 1800 Sheridan Road.
After the raid, though, city inspectors discovered 24 building code violations. On top of that, according to police, some barbers allegedly didn't have the required state licenses to cut hair.
Good to know police are concerned if barbers are licensed to give hair cuts. The Hound wasn't aware police academies touched on violations of state Department of Professional Regulation rules in the course work. Anything in police class about pedicure procedures?
Surprisingly, Police Chief Mike Newsome's dad owns a barbershop in North Chicago, Dave's Barbershop in the 2300 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. No word if police checked on barber licenses in that shop.
