“My b—- needs some hair extensions, which are the best ones?” –Armed Robber
Benitra Jackson said she was preparing to close up for the night when a man wearing a mask burst into the Main Beauty Supply store in Dallas and demanded at gunpoint that she and the store’s manager get down on the floor.
“He was just telling us to get down or he’ll shoot,” Jackson said.
Surveillance video shows the robber forcing the manager to the floor first, then turning to Jackson.
“He threw me on the floor and told me to put the money in the bag. So I just threw the money in the bag then laid back down on the floor,” she said.
Jackson said she gave the robber all of the money in the register, but he wanted more.
“He was just saying ‘the change too,’ cause he had kids,” she said.
Jackson was shocked when the robber then demanded hair extensions.
Jackson told officers the man said, “My b—- needs some hair extensions, which are the best ones?”
“I was like, really?” said Jackson. “I wanted to laugh, but something was going on and I was in shock. So I was like why are you asking me about the most expensive hair extensions? So I just grabbed any kind for him.”
Jackson said she’s thankful no one was hurt, and says she hopes the robber is caught. She also hopes when he gives his girlfriend the stolen gift, she isn’t impressed. “I hope she doesn’t like them.”
Hair extensions are increasingly involved in both criminal and civil cases around the country. Here are four more “hair raising” crimes involving the ever-popular beauty accessory.
