MORE CRIME: Drug death leads to raid, arrests at Springfield motel
“I’m so grateful to the people of Springfield,” Digel said. “The city has kind of had a bad reputation in recent years. There’s a lot of good people in the city who want to see Springfield flourish and are sick of the crime going on.”
Digel plans to re-install the pole with additional surveillance and security features, he said. It represents simpler times, he said. He opened the shop in February.
“A barber pole represents more than just a barber shop,” Digel said. “A barber shop is a place where the community comes, gets to know their friends and neighbors and hang out here.”
Police are still investigating the incident, Capt. Mike Varner said.
