Thieves Steal $80K Worth of Human Hair From Beauty Supply Store


Thieves broke into a Chicago beauty supply store on Easter and made off with almost $80,000 worth of human hair. The Tribune reports that the robbers pried open a metal door at the shop’s rear and targeted the most expensive brands of hair once inside. Jay Han, the owner of Beauty One, said the men knew what they were doing. “They know, because they have a wife and they know what they do to beautify their hair styles and how they invest their money to buy hair.” Police are combing through surveillance footage because that is a pun.
