Four arrested in $15,000 Hair Extension theft in Houston  The store owner stated that he had a feeling that one of the suspects that appeared on the surveillance tape was tied to a phone call he received about a particular piece of hair approximately 10 minutes prior to robbery.

I was like, oh wow this is crazy.” (Source
