A group of north Houston hair merchants have banded together and posted a $5,000 reward for the capture of weave snatchers!
Well, technically not weave, but hair from the popular Saga line, which can go for $40 to $100 depending on the length. Saga sells for only $25 a pack on the street -- get 'em while they're hot!
One owner, Matt Yi, was hit twice in two weeks when the thieves bust a hole in his wall using sledgehammers.
According to Fox 26 Houston, at least seven Houston-area stores have been robbed of the premium hair product in the last few months. In addition to soliciting the help of the Houston PD, some store owners have beefed up private security at their stores and raised more than $5,000 through Crime Stoppers.
Apparently, the recession is driving women who want to keep their hair tight to desperate measures. And someone is capitalizing off of it. I mean, I know girls in H-town like their hair to be "hot", but um, this is taking it to another level...
