Every barber and cosmetologist licensed in the state of West Virginia since 1986 could now potentially be a victim of identity theft. Someone broke into the second floor office of the Board of Barbers and Cosmetologists and stole a safe. The director of the agency says the safe contains the personal information of thousands of hair dressers.
