Nearly $100,000 in hair extensions has been stolen from metro Atlanta beauty stores since May

It appears hair extensions, some of which can cost as much as $140, have joined designer blue jeans and flat-screen TVs on the list of products that criminals love to steal. Via the AJC:

Three masked men struck at 2 a.m. Tuesday, breaking into the Beauty Masters II store in the Camp Creek Marketplace shopping center on Camp Creek Parkway. Surveillance video shows the trio frantically grabbing single-strand weaves from the shelves before fleeing.

On the early morning of June 16, thieves smashed their way into another business owned by the same individual, the Beauty Master store at 3031 Headland Drive S.W. near Greenbriar Parkway.

Four burglars wearing gloves and masks and driving a black Chevrolet Suburban shattered two front entry doors with a rock and took $30,000 in Remi hair extensions that individually sold for $140 and up.

In an earlier heist, May 26, gloved and masked thieves rammed a car through the front door of the Beauty Emporium on Riverdale Road in Clayton County and made off with an estimated $10,000 in hair extensions.

Help put an end to the smash-and-grab madness by refusing to buy hair extensions out of the back of a strangers' banged-up Chevy Suburban.
