The owner of a Stockton beauty salon and spa said they have installed special protection to keep the business safe after a burglary earlier in the month.
Southern Exposure Spa on Miracle Mile was ransacked by thieves caught on camera who did extensive damage while taking thousands of dollars worth of items.

Meryl Southern has operated the salon for 30 years. She said she appreciated the community support received after the burglaries, and is adding an extra layer of security to the salon.
Southern had a rabbi stop by to place a mezuzah on the front door of the salon.
“It’s a Jewish thing we do, and it’s just good to know we have that added protection,” Southern said.
Rabbi Brode said that along with the spiritual security, the mezuzah also has other benefits.
“It’s important. People should know about it and not be ashamed about it, even though we know what’s going on in the world with the craziness out there. But Jewish pride, when you add light and Jewish pride, that’s what eliminates all types of anti-Semitism and hatred,” Rabbi Brode said.
