WATCH: Wig robbery goes very, very wrong and it’s all caught on camera

News footage of wig robbery

Wigs are undeniably wonderful.

Violent robbery, not so much.

And in an unusual crime caught on camera in Silver Spring, Md., the two became one.

In the below report, we see some determined wig snatchers use fists, pepper spray, even wigs themselves, to fight store employees.

As this intrepid reporter will tell you, some of the 1000-odd wigs at Esther’s cost as much as $1500.

Unfortunately, the bandits did make off with some pricey merchandise.

As the Washington Post reports, a cash reward of up to $10,000 is being offered. Anyone with information is asked to call 240-773-5070.
