Hair extensions are making the cut with thieves

HOUSTON, TX – Four beauty supply store burglaries in 1 week. At the root of the problem…hair, extensions that is.

“Everyone wants their hair pretty, I mean who doesn`t want nice hair?  They just don`t want to pay for it.” said Deneen Jacobs of Beauty Sensation.

And natural human locks are worth big bucks. Extensions can run $179 – $199 per pack and most people have to use several.

So do the cops have these hoods in their crosshairs?

“Yes, we have some good leads we’re looking at right now, so we’ve got some good information coming forward,” explained Sgt. Frank Quinn of HPD’s Major Offenders Division.
