JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Thieves smashed into a beauty store and stole $20,000 in hair extensions and clothes Thursday morning.
The smash-and-grab burglary happened at CoCo Beauty around 4:40 a.m. The suspects used a cement block to smash the glass door and gain entry to the shop.
The store manager told WJAX at least $20,000 worth of hair extensions, clothes and other items were taken.
Surveillance video from inside CoCo Beauty that showed the suspects ransack the store.
One of the suspects shattered a display case and grabbed whatever he could get his hands on.
The video also showed the suspect go behind the counter to steal the more expensive hair extensions.
Another suspect walked into the store and ripped clothes right off a rack, before he took a few items off the counter on his way out.
The burglars were in and out of the beauty store in less than three minutes.
Police responded about nine minutes later, but the suspects got away.
The store manager said the burglars were bold because there’s a JSO substation in the same shopping center.
She said two of their other beauty stores were targeted this week.
It is unclear if the incidents are related.
