Security camera catches hair thief in the act

CALIFORNIA (CNN) – A California store owner fights off a would-be shoplifter trying to make off with hair extensions, the scuffle was caught on camera.

“She take two packs, two packs over here,” said Andy Hyun.

A hairy situation caught on camera, the owner of Cathy’s beauty supply store in a tangle, with a woman trying to get away with a purse full of stolen hair extensions.

“My wife say, Andy, check her bag, something inside,” Hyun continued.

Andy Hyun says security cameras caught the woman shoving the packs of hair extension into her purse, but when he confronted her in the back of the store with a stun gun, she managed to break free, but left her purse behind.

“When they opened it, her id, social security card,” said Hyun.

Police say inside was an id for Tatiana Scott, the same woman believed to be in this security video.

“Normally, they bring in an empty bag, no any id, nothing. I never seen before, that’s very weird,” Hyun continued.

Hun is still scratching his head over the suspect’s slip up, but he says her crime costs his small business.

“It really hurts. Sometimes I think I’m going to quit this business, that much hurt,” said Hyun.

And he’s hoping the clues she left behind will make it easier for cops to track down this accused follicle felon.

“She wants to get caught, so you know, she’ll get what’s coming to her,” Hyun said.
