Women charged with targeting Good Samaritans

MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich (WZZM) -- Two Muskegon Heights women accused of stealing from Good Samaritans are now facing charges.

Tiffany Raglin, 25, and Aviyanna Glover,22, are charged with "fraudulent use of a credit card." Raglin is also charged with "larceny from a person."

Police say one of the women would ask for vehicle help.  As the victim bent over the hood of the vehicle, the other woman would steal the person's wallet. 

The stolen credit cards were used at several stores throughout Norton Shores, Muskegon, and Fruitport Township.

Two other people have also been arrested in connection to the crimes.

Styling salon offers skills to laid off workers

MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. (WZZM) - The Daniel's Hair Styling Academy is one of the oldest business in Muskegon Heights. It opened in the 1960's and since 1982 has been owned by Beverly Hilton. The school is surrounded by buildings with broken windows and padlocked doors - signs of businesses that either closed or left Muskegon Heights.

Hilton says she'll do everything possible to keep her school open. "As long as my health holds up, I will be here," she says.

The economy in Muskegon County has hit the school hard. At one time as many as 80 students were enrolled to become cosmetologists. Now enrollment is around 20.  For many, job loss is the reason they are at the school.

John Johnson of Muskegon worked for three decades at the now closed Sappi paper mill. Now, he's following in his daughter's footsteps and pursuing a degree in cosmetology.

"When one door closes, another opens, that's how it goes," said Johnson.

Sports Complex needs snow

NORTH MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) - Staff at the Muskegon Winter Sports Complex are keeping their fingers crossed for snow. The park offers miles of cross-country ski trails, two luge tracks, and massive outdoor ice skating rinks.

Jim Rudicil is the parks' manager. He says the park has only received a couple of inches of snow and that's not nearly sufficient to open the trails for skiing and track for luging.

But Wednesday workers were applying water to that part of the park were three large ice rinks are built each year. Rudicil hopes to have portions of the rinks open for skating by this weekend.
