Weave thieves have struck again, robbing an Atlanta beauty supply store for high-dollar hair extensions, Atlanta police said.

Thieves broke the window of  Lexi’s Beauty Supply with a brick, but got away with just $60 dollars of merchandise, the store’s owner Travis Tipton said.

The break in is the latest in a recent trend of beauty store burglaries in which thieves have sought out expensive hair extensions.
