3:02 p.m. – The manager of European Wax Center at 1000 Division Street said a client got $120 worth of services on Dec. 30 and left without paying. She’d said she wanted to pay by check, but those aren’t accepted so she said she would go out to her car to get cash, leaving her temporary driver’s license behind. She did not return. Police reached the woman, who promised to pay on Friday. Police said she would be charged if she failed to comply.

Police spoke with the owner of the EG salon, who said the woman could come by on Monday; the owner also told the officer he did not appreciate being bothered on a Sunday and he would call the police if the officer called again, even though the officer told the owner twice that he was the police.
