SHAWNEE, Kan. (AP) — A burglar who's been breaking into Great Clips hair salons in the Kansas City metro area appears to have struck again.

The break-ins on both sides of the Missouri-Kansas line began in June and now number at least 13. Police say only small amounts of cash are taken each time.

Police in the Johnson County, Kansas, community of Shawnee responded at 6 a.m. Tuesday to an alarm from a Great Clips, where the front door had been broken out. Officers found a similar burglary at another Great Clips in Shawnee a short time later.

Investigators believe all of the burglaries are related. There's no description of the suspect from the latest cases, but he's been described in earlier break-ins as a heavyset white male, about 5-feet-10 to 5-feet-11 inches tall.
