Two Main Street shops in Cold Spring experienced break-ins either late Wednesday night (Jan. 28) or early the next morning. Judie Nuskind, owner of Simply Elegant Nail Salon at 112 Main St., told Philipstown.info that she received a call from her landlord early Thursday morning, informing her of the break-in. When she came to the shop later that morning she was escorted inside by Cold Spring Police at her request.
Nuskind said that as best as she can determine, nothing was stolen or damaged. She said the burglar gained entry through a rear window. “To tell you the truth, I’ve never looked at that window or even moved the curtain,” she said, acknowledging that the latch may not have been locked. In addition to being a nail salon, the shop also sells jewelry, but none was taken according to Nuskind. She also said she never leaves cash in the shop overnight.
Ming Moon Chinese Restaurant at 106 Main St. was also broken into, however its owners declined to comment.
