If you’re probably asking yourself right now ‘what would people do for money,’ then the recent Miami heist should provide you with a satisfactory answer. Miami Police Department reported that a band of thieves broke into a Miami Beauty store in order to steal some hair.
Everybody’s heard about thieves breaking into jewelry stores to fill their sacks with shiny diamonds or staged bank heists to make away with cash. But it would seem that the newest heist investigated by the Miami Police Department defies everything we know in terms of robbery.
As the PD’s spokesperson declares, on Tuesday morning, someone called the emergency services in order to report an ongoing theft which took place at the Beauty Exchange Beauty Supply store.
Shortly after that, several police officers made their way to the store located at the intersection of NW 119th Street and NW 10th Avenue. Of course, the perpetrators were long gone at the time the officers arrived.
To determine the identity of the robbers and see what exactly was stolen from the store, the police officers began to review the security tapes. The footage captured by the security camera might be hilarious if not for the theft and for the damage.
The reviewed footage showed several masked persons who were struggling to get inside the shop. Baffling enough, instead of picking the lock or breaking the window, the robbers chose a more direct approach – smashing the store’s brick wall using heavy sledgehammers.
After a couple of minute of banging on the wall, the thieves managed to bring down the wall of the Miami Beauty store. Once inside, the perpetrators took every loose strand of they could find, after vanishing into thin air.
According to the police’s investigation, the suspects manage to get away with approximately $2,000-worth of hair. Even more curious is the fact that the store’s owner declared that a similar theft took place at his other store which is located a few meters away from the store that was robbed.
At the moment, Miami’s Police Department didn’t have any leads and was unable to establish the identity of the thieves. Unfortunately, the surveillance cameras were unable to record the robbers’ getaway.
Miami’s PD is turning towards the population for information that may lead to the arrest of the persons involved in the Miami Beauty store theft.
