    A Watauga barbershop is offering a $500 reward for the return of a special military jacket stolen last week.

    Andrea Liner, the owner of the Upscale Barber Shop, said a jacket that belonged to her grandfather, who served in World War II, was taken in a burglary Dec. 30.

    "I don't care who took it," she said. "I just want it back. I don't care. He's gone, and there's nothing else that can replace that."

    Liner said barber supplies and a television were also stolen, but said the jacket has sentimental value.

    [DFW] Special Military Jacket Stolen
    The Upscale Barber Shop in Watauga was burglarized on December 30, 2010 and among the items stolen was a military jacket worn by the shop owner's grandfather.

    Her father, Gary Johnson, works at his daughter's barbershop in the 6100 block of Watauga Road.

    "There's no reason to take a jacket like that," said Gary Johnson, who works at his daughter's barbershop in the 6100 block of Watauga Road. "I'll give $500 reward to get Dad's jacket because something like that, you can't replace it."

    Johnson said Watauga police took fingerprints after the robbery.

    A Watauga police spokesman did not return message Tuesday for comment about the case.
