New Orleans Robber Steals 40 Hair Clippers

| by Michael Allen

A New Orleans, Louisiana beauty supply store was robbed Monday morning. The robber stole cash and dozens of hair clippers from Sally Beauty Supply. Police say the suspect may also be responsible for a similar robbery in late October.

The suspect walked in, implied he had a gun and made the clerk lock the door, said Sgt. Chris Billiot. The suspect then demanded cash out of the safe and bagged up about 40 hair clippers to take with him.

“We need someone to come forward. Someone is going to know who has those clippers,” Sgt. Billiot said. ”He will be moving those clippers, so someone might get a pair and get a reward.”

The circumstances of the robbery are similar to another case a month ago, when a Vitamin Shoppe three blocks away was also robbed by a man suggesting he had a gun.
