barsHOUSTON, TX – Something ugly went down at a northeast Houston beauty salon.

“I think they are very ignorant. They need to go get off their behinds and get them a job,” said Creasie Dickerson.

An attempted smash and grab foiled thanks to a trusty set of burglar bars.

Houston Police Department says the suspects busted in through the back door of JH Beauty off of Homestead, not realizing there was a second burglar bar gate waiting for them. Police say it looks like the suspects couldn’t get past the gate and gave up and got away.

“I just think it’s ridiculous, really. I don’t think they should do it,” Tracy Holloway.

While HPD is on the case, this lady has a message for the suspected beauty burglars: “I hope you all get caught, because guess what? You’re going to get caught.”
