Vancouver Police say that multiple wigs were stolen during a break-in to a hair salon near City Centre Mall last week.   

In a news release, police state that two male suspects broke into JO Hair salon located at 3017 Cambie Street and stole multiple wigs, hair toppers, and hair extensions worth over $45,000 in the morning of June 3.  

One suspect is described as having a slim build and was wearing a dark hoody, dark pants, and black Nike shoes.  The other suspect is described as having a medium build. He was wearing a light-coloured hoody, dark-coloured pants and shoes, and two-toned gloves. 

“Investigators believe the thieves targeted this particular store to specifically steal the wigs and hair extensions,” says Constable Tania Visintin, VPD. “These wigs are not only cosmetic, but can be for those who, for medical reasons, can’t grow hair.  For that reason alone, a crime like this is very distressing.”

Store surveillance video shows the men leaving in a white, older model van.  

Anyone with information is asked to call the VPD’s Property Crime Unit at 604-717-2773 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
