“It Costs Cash,” Lundy Said
A store that sells expensive human hair bundles was the target of a stickup late morning Wednesday.
A black man toting a handgun walked inside All Virgin Strands Glam Bar about 10:30 a.m. Bibb County sheriff’s Lt. Randy Gonzalez said.
The robber, dressed in darkish clothes with a black cloth covering his face, went to the back of the shop and encountered an worker who was working alone.
“He took a number of hair pieces,” Gonzalez mentioned. “Packed them in a bag” and ran out the back of the business, which is close to Mercer College Drive and Oglesby Place.

A woman at PL Cleaners next door stated the man who’d just been robbed got here inside the cleaners “sweating bullets,” and advised her he’d been robbed and feared for his life.
Chan Lundy, an employee at all Virgin Strands Glam Bar who wasn’t working Wednesday, mentioned she was taking her son to the dentist when she handed by and saw patrol cars and crime scene tape.
Lundy stated bundles of the hair cost between $80-$90, and at the least two to a few bundles are wanted to cover a person’s entire head.
“It prices money,” Lundy said. “It’s Brazilian hair. You should use it for 2 to three years. It ain’t something you just put in and just (wear). It’s like hair from overseas the place any individual performed donated and they promote it. It’s real human hair. It’s the actual deal.”
Lundy said the shop has been burglarized a couple instances since she started working there a year and a half in the past, but that is the first stickup that she knows of.
“He had to get a number of hair because we simply stocked up,” Lundy mentioned. “Ain’t no telling how much hair he obtained because we were full to capacity.”
Anyone with any data concerning the robbery is urged to call the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500 or call Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 1-877-68CRIME.
