Artifacts stolen from El Dorado County barber shop museum
News


Tens of thousands of dollars worth of collectibles were stolen from an El Dorado County museum and barber shop early Wednesday morning.

Barber Jon's Barber Shop, billed an El Dorado County's "only sideshow of curiosities and oddities," was broken into between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m.

Barber Jon said 70 straight edge razors and shaving mugs from the 1800s were taken, while some razors and clippers were left behind. Jon said he believes his shop/museum was cased before it was cleaned out because of what was stolen and left behind.

Barber Jon's Barber Shop was named the weirdest museum in the world by FoxNews. Jon described himself as "part PT Barnum and part Mark Twain." People can get free admission to the museum with every haircut.

While there is no suspect description, surveillance video from a nearby restaurant, the Purple Place, may have some clues that could lead investigators to the stolen items and/or the suspects.

If you have any information about the burglary, call the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office at 530-621-5655.
