HOUSTON -- Burglars went to great lengths to steal hair extensions from a beauty supply store in northwest Houston.

Officials say three men were caught on tape breaking into J s Beauty Supply, located in the 6600 block of Antoine, early Thursday morning.

The trio tore through a fence, a steel door, two walls and crawled to avoid being detected by burglar alarm sensors.

Owner Jay Youm said, I just went, blank. I was upset. I was mad.

The crooks stole $50,000 worth of real human hair from the building.

A stylist who works at the store said, Everybody wants expensive hair.

The extensions are sold in boxes that are about a foot long. The strands cost $50 to $150.

They went straight to the section where I have the most expensive hair on display and that s all they took, said Youm.

The surveillance video shows the men crawling away with bags full of extensions.

The store s owner suspects the men had been in the store before to plan the break-in.

Investigators looked for fingerprints, but found none.

Youm says real hair and beauty supply stores are being targeted all over Houston.

It s believed the stolen hair extensions will be sold on the street.

If you know anything about this burglary you re asked to call the Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713- 222-TIPS (8477).
