Langley wig shop robbed of hair extensions

The owner of a Langley wig store that provides hair to cancer patients says thousands of dollars of merchandise were stolen last month.

Rose Adams said thieves broke into her store on Sept. 18 and took extensions made of real hair and synthetic hair pieces.

Adams said she is shocked thieves would target her shop.

"Well, it's terrible because, you know. I work with cancer patients," she told CBC News. "They have no heart."

Adams said luckily the thieves didn't have a chance to get to the wigs, but they ended up taking off with about $5,000 in luscious locks.

Her store, House of Miss Rose, has been broken into once a year for the past five, according to Adams.
Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks said a white SUV was seen near the store shortly after the theft. Investigators are hoping someone will come forward with information.
