Slithering thief stole wigs intended for cancer victims

A wig store in south west Houston is asking for the public's help in tracking down a sneaky burglar. The man was captured on surveillance video overnight on Monday slithering through Tiffani Chanel Luxury Hair.

He got into the business after breaking into a vacant space next door, punching a hole through a bathroom wall and crawling in. The intruder stayed low to the ground the entire time to avoid the motion-detecting alarm. "He was laying on the ground, (doing a) low crawl like they do in the military," explained store manager Chanie Speller.

"He's a snake. That's what they do." Surveillance footage shows the man inching his way behind the register, crawling over to the wigs and crouching onto his knees. He was only able to reach 11 wigs on the lowest shelf and some other merchandise. The store's owner says she was furious when she watched the video. "He should be ashamed. That's the lowest of the low," said owner Tiffani Speller.

Speller says the stolen wigs were going to be donated to a cancer makeover event in two weeks. She hopes the images of the culprit will blow the lid off of his low profile. "It's just pathetic, a grown man stealing wigs that are designated for cancer patients. It's just ridiculous," Speller said. The stolen wigs are estimated to be worth more than $3,000. Houston Police are investigating.
