Thieves steal thousands of dollars' in wigs from Pasadena shop
HAIR HEIST: The owner of Evette's Beauty Supply said the crooks asked to see wigs made out of human hair worth thousands of dollars. Then, when the clerk was distracted, they snatched the expensive wigs and ran off.

PASADENA, Calif. (KABC) -- The search continues for several suspects who stole thousands of dollar's worth of wigs at Evette's Beauty Supply in Pasadena.

The suspects called the store ahead of time, and when they came in, they requested to see the most expensive wigs in the shop made from human hair. When the clerk was distracted, the suspects grabbed the wigs and took off running.

"I believe they probably had been in the store before because they knew exactly which wigs they wanted to steal," said Evette, the owner of the store.

Evette says she hopes that someone will recognize the suspects from surveillance videos. Their faces are clearly visible because their masks are down.
