(CBS/AP) CHICAGO - Three thieves battered through a wall, crawled close to the floor to dodge motion detectors, and stole six duffel bags filled with human hair extensions from a Chicago beauty supply store.
The thieves broke through a wall from an attached empty storefront at about 2 a.m. Saturday.
The Chicago Tribune reported Saturday that the hair extensions were worth $230,000.
Store owner Don Shin said the criminals took his best merchandise.
"They knew what they were doing. They didn't take any of the cheap stuff," Shin told the paper.
He thinks the culprits will try to sell the extensions on the street or to salons.
Extensions can be made from artificial or human hair. They are used in salons to add length and volume to a hairstyle.
