DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. – Broward County sheriff's detectives are searching for two burglars who stole dozens of hair weaves from a Deerfield Beach beauty supply store.

The burglary was reported about 5 a.m. Aug. 8 at Number 1 Beauty Supply, 819 W. Sample Road.

Deputies said the thieves used a window punch to smash the glass front door before stealing 50 Brazilian hair weaves displayed behind the cash register, worth about $3,000.

According to detectives, the burglars, who wrapped T-shirts around their faces to hide their identities, did not touch the cash register or steal any other items from the store.

The men fled the scene in a white, late-model four-door car, possibly a Lexus.
