2 men reportedly tie-up Montclair hair shop worker, steal thousands in high-end human hair extensions
Two men allegedly tied up a woman working at a Montclair hair extension shop recently then made off with thousands of dollars of high-end hair pieces, Montclair police said.
The men — who were caught on Baby Doll Luxury Hair’s surveillance cameras — walked into the shop located at 9105 Monte Vista Avenue around 1:30 p.m. on Nov. 25 while the employee was on the phone with a customer, according to police and initial reports.
One of the men rushed behind the counter and reportedly bound the woman’s hands behind her back, according to a news release.
“The two suspects stole several hair pieces and fled the location after entering a newer white SUV,” the statement said.
Only a few days prior on Nov. 16, someone tried to break into the store after business hours but they were unsuccessful, officials said. Investigators do not believe the two incidents are related.
Both cases are currently being investigated. Police ask anyone with information to call the Montclair Police Department at 909-448-3600. They can also leave an anonymous tip at the WeTip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME or www.WeTip.com.
