It’s a bitter blow for the business owner who recently shared that “I love my little space that I’ve worked so hard for”.
“Nothing will stop me from succeeding. Sure, there’s bumps in the road, I never expected that opening my own salon would be smooth sailing, but it’s all worth it.
Last year she took to social media, excited to be opening her salon and academy.
“Fifteen-year-old Laura-Jane would be so proud of me right now,” she said.
“Dreams really do come true.”

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers.
