  1. Man Jailed for Hair Cutting Spree

    Apr 7, 10:49 am ET

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - When police finally came to Michael Howard's home, they discovered hair
    everywhere: a thin carpet of hair covering the floor, huge mounds on the bed and in the closet plus
    photos of severed ponytails lined up as neatly as bodies in a morgue. The cops knew then that they
    had finally caught up with the notorious "Haircut Bandit."

    For three weeks in December of 2001, Howard cruised the streets of Los Angeles and Long Beach,
    California, casing bus stops and park benches for women with ultra-long tresses.

    Before he was caught, Howard chopped hanks of hair or entire ponytails from the heads of nine
    victims, ages 12 to 45. Investigators began closing in on the bicycle repair shop owner on New
    Year's Eve when a deputy sheriff saw him approach a woman at a bus stop and shear off her
    waist-length hair.

    He escaped -- dropping his scissors and his hair trophy -- but police nabbed him the next day. On
    Thursday, Howard entered a surprise guilty plea and was sentenced to eight years in prison for his
    hair-razing rampage.

    Partner of Gian Simonetti ( Simonetti frames) Mike apparently had a cocaine problem for awhile too.
    Mike used to do all the aluminum frame building and Gian did all the steel since Gian wasn't good at
    working with aluminum. Dave

    apparently, he was pretty good with scissors. Too bad for Simo, though, it can't be good
    for business.
