Houston hair thieves rob beauty supply store

By Rebecca Lewis. CREATED Jul 31, 2014

Here's a story you don't see every day. New surveillance video shows a group of burglars rushing into a business. They were going after one thing, hair extensions.

It happened at a beauty supply store in Houston.

A driver slammed a truck through the store. About five men jumped out and grabbed everything they could.

The thieves were in and out in less than two minutes.

Each pack of extensions they grabbed were worth about $100. Police have yet to catch them.

Hair theft is becoming a popular crime these days with more women using it than ever.

Stolen hair can be sold on the black market for as little as $25.
